Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney has reportedly landed her next role. The emerging actress is set to appear in Sony’s The Registration. The Night House writers Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski are set to adapt the script from Madison Lawson’s forthcoming book of the same name. Details regarding the book’s plot are being kept under wraps, but Lawson’s latest work will hit shelves on September 27.
At 24 years old, Sweeney is one of the brightest young stars in Hollywood. She has played a regular role in HBO’s Euphoria and she also had a key role in the first season of The White Lotus. Not to mention, she appeared in Robot Chicken and Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood. Moving forward, she’s secured roles in Madame Web and National Anthem. Unfortunately, her recent streak of success has recently been marred by controversy.
Sydney Sweeney is one of the more unpopular names on social media this week. Recently, the star actress posted multiple photos of herself and her family at her mother’s 60th birthday party. Within the photos, her father can be seen wearing a “Thin Blue Line” t-shirt. Sweeney also tagged her brother in multiple photos and a few of her followers looked through photos posted to his account. In multiple photos from the party, attendees can be seen wearing parodied Make America Great Again hats that read, “Make Sixty Great Again.”
“Where were you on [January] 6th?” one user commented.
“Disappointed, but not surprised,” another user commented.
After facing intense backlash on both Instagram and Twitter, Sweeney issued a response via Twitter.
“You guys this is wild. An innocent celebration for my [Mom’s] milestone 60th birthday has turned into an absurd political statement, which was not the intention. Please stop making assumptions,” she wrote.
Similar to her initial post, her tweet also drew criticism from Euphoria viewers and beyond.
“Except for the fact that your family wore red MAGA hats and even Blue Lives Matter shirts, a movement that was created to mock and spit in the face of Black people who are protesting police brutality and structural racism in America. It’s political and it’s intentional,” Occupy Democrats replied.
Sweeney has refrained from posting anything unrelated to The Registration since her Mother’s birthday party.
