Storm Reid is featured on one of the Subscriber covers for InStyle’s magazine November issue. “The Euphoria” star spoke about working with Hollywood’s top stars, her “bonus big sister” Zendaya and representation in the industry.
On her positivity: “People think of me as somebody they can look to for positivity, but, truthfully, I’m just a young girl trying to figure it out,” she says. “I’m actually a pretty shy person, and when I’m not in front of the camera, I’m much more introverted.”
On representation in the industry: “The projects I choose to be part of are very intentional,” she says. “I see each one as an opportunity to have a progressive conversation and represent people and situations that are underrepresented. Young girls deserve to see themselves onscreen. Because how can you feel like you’re able to succeed when you don’t see yourself succeeding?”
On Chadwick Boseman: “He dedicated his life to being part of projects that benefited us as a Black culture, and that’s what I want to try to do,” she says. “I’m really happy to be a young Black woman in the space I’m in—to be accepted, to be loved, and for people to appreciate my work—and I want to create opportunities for people who haven’t been given them yet. Ms. Ava took a chance on me, so why wouldn’t I take a chance on someone else?”
On Zendaya: “I’ve been a fangirl of hers since the beginning of time, and now she’s like my bonus big sister,” says Reid, who plays Gia Bennett, the younger sibling of Zendaya’s character, Rue, on the hit HBO series. “She’s so genuine, and whether I need advice about ‘growing up in Hollywood,’ as they say, or just advice as a teenage girl trying to figure out life, she’s always a phone call away.”
