Euphoria fans have been left feeling very confused over their feelings for young Cal, after this week's episode produced a LOT of unlikely thirst tweets.
As seasoned Euphoria viewers will know, each episode focusses on a different character and explains a bit about their back story. While this series has already looked at how Fez ended up drug dealing, Nate Jacobs' dad Cal (played by Eric Dane) took centre stage on Monday [24 January.]
Fans watched a young Cal suppressing his sexual feelings for best friend Derek (played by Henry Eikenberry) due to his own father's relationship expectations for his son. Sounds familiar, huh?
Considering Cal is known for intimidating, cheating and bullying the likes of Nate and Jules in Euphoria, it was an interesting character exploration for fans - helped by the fact young Cal was played by Elias Kacavas.
Elias is a relatively new actor, who doesn't have many productions to his name. He's from New Hampshire, USA, and went to New York City to study acting (via IMDb.)
As one fan put it. "I can’t be the only one who immediately looked up who the actor was that played young Cal Jacobs" and another added, "Young Cal and Derek have my whole heart."
Someone else said, "Me rooting for young cal and Derek and then remembering everything about who he turns out to be." Couldn't have said it better ourselves tbh.
