Hunter Schafer and Dominic Fike were spotted holding hands in West Hollywood on Sunday.
With the release of HBO’s hit series’s second season, it seems Euphoria is all anyone is talking about.
From memes on Instagram to fan theories on Tiktok, it’s easy to deduce that fans are invested in the shows on-screen romances. Now it seems cast members tangled in a love triangle on screen may be dating off screen.
Hunter Schafer and Dominic Fike were photographed leaving Nice Guy restaurant in West Hollywood on Sunday. The pair’s interlocked fingers sparked dating rumours that have not yet been confirmed.
Schafer, who plays Jules on Euphoria, wore an oversized hoodie atop a silk patterned skirt. She finished the casual look off with a bomber jacket, sneakers and a red face mask.
Fike, who joined Euphoria for season 2 as Elliot, also was casual in a stripped and lightly distressed knit sweater, black pants and Doc Martens.
Rumours of the pair dating have been circling on social media. One fan claimed to have seen the pair kissing at Nice Guy while hanging out with Euphoria co-stars, Jacob Elordi (Nate) and Alexa Demie (Maddy) on a separate night.
On the show, Schafer’s character is currently dating Zendaya’s character, Rue. As seen in the second episode, which aired on Sunday, the introduction of Fike’s character has already caused turmoil between Rue and Jules. But, Zendaya says Elliot will be a catalyst for change.
“There were a lot of conversations over the years about where the show was going to go and what it was going to evolve into, and I remember when Sam first kind of talked about the idea of this Elliot character, I wasn’t feeling it — as someone who ships ‘Rules’ to the bitter end. And I was like, ‘whoa, whoa, whoa, what are we doing here? But, in retrospect, and also as someone who understands where the show needs to go and what needs to happen for these characters, it’s crucial that Elliot exist and that he be the person that is honestly the catalyst for a lot of things that just have to happen.”
