Zendaya solidified another Emmy win after her incredible performance in episode 5 of “Euphoria” season 2.

The actress opened up about the episode saying it was physically and mentally painful to portray and watch.

It was so intense and scary to tackle, and obviously something that would be incredibly emotionally taxing, but also physically taxing.

Also, I care about Rue and I hate when she’s in pain. And I think this whole episode, there’s so much pain and it’s bubbling to the surface, and it’s also crossed with her withdrawing, which is extremely physically painful.

She also revealed that she still has scars on her legs from filming.

It was a very tough day. I mean, I beat myself up.

I still have some scars on my legs, and got quite a few bruises.

In episode 5, titled, “Stand Still Like the Hummingbird”, Zendaya’s character, Rue, is having a breakdown while in withdrawal from drugs.

Sam Levinson, the creator of the show, anticipated bringing Rue’s rock bottom moment to life for a while.

It’s always been a really intense episode…the general idea was always the same, which was this idea of, we cut right into an intervention and it’s Rue just ripping her life apart and setting her life on fire and kind of tearing everything to the ground to basically come to hopefully what feels like rock bottom for her.

The episode was definitely the most emotionally charged and gripping episode of the series so far.

Zendaya did an amazing acting job, and her performance has Twitter buzzing about her winning her second Emmy.
