Alexa Demie will make a cameo as Maddy Perez from “Euphoria” in HBO’s new show ‘The Idol,’ created by Sam Levinson. She will appear as a woman at the club where Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp) and Tedros (Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye) meet. This news was confirmed at a press conference in Cannes today.
‘The Idol’ premiered at the 76th Cannes Film Festival on May 22, 2023. According to reports, Rose Depp gave a highly sexualized performance that is also grounded and often vulnerable, discomfitingly addressing the fine lines between sex and art, power, and exploitation that have faced young women in the music industry for years.
The Idol focuses on Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp), an aspiring pop idol who, after having a nervous breakdown that causes her last tour to be canceled, resolves to reclaim her title as the sexiest pop star in America and begins a complex relationship with Tedros (Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye), a self-help guru and the head of a contemporary cult.
Alexa Demie is best known for her role as Maddy Perez in HBO’s “Euphoria.” She was born on December 11, 1994, in Los Angeles, California. Before her acclaimed performance in “Euphoria,” Demie appeared in independent films like “Brigsby Bear” and “Mid90s,” as well as guest spots on TV shows such as “Ray Donovan” and “Love.”
