I hope many of you can see yourself in her like I did and are glad to see the character she is on her journey today. I put all my care and love into it and I hope you guys can feel it. Love you Catherine Hernandez.”
Fans followed the story of Katherine Hernandez, affectionately known as Kat, on a journey of self-love, self-expression, and confidence during Seasons 1 and 2 of the show. She eventually finds the confidence to be her sexiest and body positive self before breaking the heart of her first high-school sweetheart.
Euphoria Season 2 focused on the development of the main cast, with the character of Kat taking a back seat in the drama. The alleged tension between Barbie and “Euphoria” director Sam Levinson was blamed for a huge cut in Kat’s story, but he brushed off those rumors in an interview with Insider.
Sometimes, things take on a life of their own, and they’re not rooted in truth, but that’s okay because I know it’s just out of passion and curiosity and that’s all good stuff. And I signed p for it. So, I’ll take it. I’ll take the good and the bad.”
