Euphoria’s long-awaited season 2 premiered on HBO on 9 January and it doesn’t disappoint. The crew are back at East Highland High School with a number of cast members returning. However, it seems many fans want to know more about one of the new faces, Chloe Cherry.

Ever since season 1, Euphoria-inspired make-up, fashion and skits have been trending on TikTok. It’s a platform that will take Euphoria season 2 and run with it, and one person TikTok seems obsessed with is Chloe Cherry.

Let’s compare the ages of Chloe Cherry and her character, Faye, in Euphoria season 2.

How old is Faye in Euphoria?

Faye is thought to be between 18 and 20 years old.

It seems likely Faye was originally named Ami during pre-production as casting agency JV8INC posted a casting call for a character named Ami with a description similar to Faye’s: “Drug addict. Stripper. Hates her boyfriend. Talks s***. Can’t read a room. Can make a bad situation worse.”

This casting call confirmed the character was 18 to 20 years old, which is a similar age if not slightly older than the other cast members.

It isn’t unusual for actors to play characters who are a lot younger, particularly when a series has such serious themes as Euphoria does. For example Maddy, who became a popular character on the show for her fashion, make-up and hair is said to be 17 years old, like Rue (played by Zendaya).

However, her character is played by Alexa Demie, who has just turned 32! Born on 11 December 1990, the actor still has the ability to bring a fresh and young aesthetic to her character.

Age of Chloe Cherry explored

Chloe Cherry was born on 23 August 1997 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, meaning she is 24 years old.

Euphoria features mature themes throughout and Zendaya, who plays Rue, warned her younger fans about the explicit nature of the series. Therefore it makes sense that the acting cast is a little older than the characters on the HBO show. With topics such as sexuality, assault and drug addiction, many of the actors are in their 20s.

Cherry started her acting career in the adult film industry in 2015, aged 18. She has featured in more than 170 adult-themed movies, as per her IMDb

Chloe Cherry has now broken into the television industry and Euphoria fans are loving her and hope to see a lot more of her character in season 2.

After her debut in episode 1, many fans wondered whether she would only make a cameo appearance. However, her arrival in the second episode confirmed we will be seeing Faye as a recurring character. Especially if she’s going to be with Fez.
