Here's How Much The Euphoria Cast Is Really Worth

There's no denying viewers are riveted by "Euphoria." Per Variety, it's HBO's second-most watched show, and we completely understand the hype. From the gripping and dramatic storylines to the stunning makeup and cinematography, Sam Levinson's creation set in fictional East Highland, California, is can't-miss TV. Slated to return for a third season, we — and millions of others — will be tuning in whenever the fresh batch of episodes arrives. 

Because of the show's success, Levinson has become a household name. He's also made some dough: The creator and writer of the show, Levinson is now worth an estimated $8 million, per Celebrity Net Worth.

But he's not the only person involved in the filming of "Euphoria" who's earning high wages. Though some of the cast have been acting for years, the teen drama has propelled all of them to uncharted fame, and each has a net worth to prove it. Here's how much the cast of "Euphoria" is really worth.

Sydney Sweeney owns her own production company

Sydney Sweeney, who plays Cassie Howard on "Euphoria," is having a moment. Not only did she attend the Met Gala for the first time in 2022, she also accepted the golden popcorn for Best Fight at the MTV Movie Awards. "Maddy might have gotten the last punch, but Cassie has never, ever been happier," she told the audience. We know she was talking about her character, but we can't help but think part of her may have been referring to herself.

Sweeney's been seen in shows like "The Handmaid's Tale" and "The White Lotus," and she nabbed a supporting role in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood." She's also possibly popped up on your For You Page on TikTok repairing her 1969 Ford Bronco.

In 2020, Deadline reported Sweeney began her own production company. With Fifty-Fifty Films, she highlights female storytellers and give new creatives an opportunity. "Being able to make a dream of theirs that they didn't think was possible for years and years happen, is amazing — to never put a limit to what their capabilities are because they're female, or their age, or their background ... I'm a big advocate for making sure everybody's voice is heard," she told Teen Vogue. All of her hard work is paying off, as Celebrity Net Worth lists her fortune at $5 million.

Zendaya is the richest by far

The most popular cast member of "Euphoria," Zendaya has gone from Disney fame to mainstream superstardom. The mononymous actor is everywhere. Whether you're opening a magazine to find her in a Bulgari ad or watching the Emmys to see her become the youngest woman ever to win Outstanding Leading Actress in a Drama Series, she can't be missed.

She's also, of course, in "Euphoria," and all of her work has earned her the largest net worth of any of her cast members. At the time of writing, her net worth is estimated at a whopping $20 million. Zendaya's been one to watch since she was a kid, continually proving to be versatile and talented. Before she won a major award or starred as M.J. in "Spider-Man," Zendaya was on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, and her placement was clearly not in vain.

But for Zendaya, it's all about the work. As she told fellow "Euphoria" star Colman Domingo in Interview, "I just want to do the things that make me happy and bring me joy and fulfillment as an artist, as a person. So, I keep that loose, because if one day it turns into a completely different career path, then I would allow myself to do that." Some of those different paths include photography, modeling, and even working as an executive producer for "Euphoria." If you ask us, no matter what career path she chooses, Zendaya will be successful.

Alexa Demie has lots of irons in the fire

Alexa Demie, who is best known for playing Maddy Perez on "Euphoria," is another multihyphenate who has pursued many creative outlets in the entertainment industry. In addition to acting, she's released music, and, as she told Nathan Fielder on "The A24 Podcast," she launched a sunglasses line in high school that caught the eye of both Nicki Minaj and Jennifer Lopez. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Demie has garnered a net worth of $3 million, most of it coming from her work as an actor.

Exploring various facets of the entertainment industry has been her plan from the start. "I've always known from a young age that I was meant to have multiple careers," she told W Magazine. The actor is also producing a movie based on her mother's upbringing in Los Angeles and life as a makeup artist. If producing pans out, Demie could potentially earn another couple hundred thousand dollars a year, per Backstage.

Jacob Elordi acts and models

Seemingly every young actor on the "Euphoria" cast has delved into modeling of some sort, and that includes Jacob Elordi. The actor, who Celebrity Net Worth estimates is worth $4 million, has posed for Hugo Boss, Vogue, Calvin Klein, and Men's Health Magazine, among other outlets and brands.

Elordi rose to fame when he starred in Netflix's romantic comedy "The Kissing Booth," but he's ascended to new heights since taking on the role of Nate Jacobs in "Euphoria." But though he is now one of the most famous young actors in Hollywood, his focus will always be his art.

"I don't care enough about being a celebrity to make movies that I don't really care about," he told Esquire. "Work is the North Star. As long as I'm doing that, I'm good," he added. Judging by his success already, Elordi will have no problem continuing to book serious roles, and will continue earning the big bucks along the way. Some of his upcoming projects include "He Went That Way," "Saltburn," and Parallel."

Maude Apatow has famous parents

Maude Apatow is now famous for playing Lexi Howard in "Euphoria" and delivering what may very well be the wildest school play in television history. But if she looks familiar, it's because you may have seen her in films like "This Is 40" or "Knocked Up." And if her name sounds familiar, it's because Maude Apatow is the daughter of modern Hollywood icons Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann.

Though Maude now is earning her own money — according to Celebrity Net Worth, she has $2 million to her name — she comes from a well-off family: Her parents have a combined estimated net worth of $108 million. Judd is known for producing some of the century's best comedic films, and creating the criminally short-lived cult classic sitcom "Freaks and Geeks." A silver screen veteran, Mann always lights up a scene, whether she's playing supporting roles in her husband's films or delivering physical comedy gold in flicks like "Blockers."

Maude and her parents are close, and she's collaborated with them in several capacities, most notably in the aforementioned films. "I definitely got good work ethic from my mom. I watched her work when I was growing up and saw how dedicated she is," she told Harper's Bazaar. "We have the best time whenever we work together. ... We're always joking around and laughing. It's a really special experience." Perhaps one of her parents will make a cameo in "Euphoria."

Hunter Schafer models, too

Hunter Schafer is another cast member of "Euphoria" who entered the entertainment industry through modeling. The star has been seen on the covers of Harper's Bazaar, V Magazine, and Allure, and has modeled for high fashion brands like Prada and Miu Miu. And her acting career sure seems to be taking off. As Deadline reported in 2021, she was cast in "Cuckoo," a horror movie that also stars Gemma Chan and John Malkovich. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she's worth an estimated $4 million

Schafer has multiple creative outlets. She's flexed more muscles on "Euphoria" than just acting, as she's cowritten and produced some episodes of the teen drama. In addition to fulfilling her on a creative level, she's said working on the other side of the camera was emotionally fulfilling, too. "I was in a very f*****g raw place, you know, it was the summer of 2020," she told i-D of her experience writing "F**k Anyone Who's Not a Sea Blob." "Probably coming out of the worst depression I've ever had, and needing somewhere to put all of that energy. When I say that episode really became a lifeline, I mean it."

Barbie Ferreira made her dream come true

Barbie Ferreira has been modeling since she was 16. The actor who plays Kat Hernandez on "Euphoria" came into her own as a teenager while working at American Apparel and wearing clothes many people deemed unfit for her body type. Ferreira was asked to model for the brand, and since she wanted to be an actor, she ended up accepting the offer, seeing it as a way to enter the industry.

The model knew she'd face challenges in her desired career path due to her size, but she felt more welcome in the fashion industry than film. "I thought that [the movie industry] would be more accepting of my body tape. But it kind of ended up being the opposite, actually," she told W Magazine of her experience. After modeling for American Apparel, she booked jobs with other brands like Aerie and H&M, and soon after landed her first major acting credit when she was cast in "Euphoria." According to Celebrity Net Worth, through her modeling and acting work, Ferreira has built a net worth of $3 million.

She's figured out how to use that money wisely. As Ferreira told Allure, "My dream in life was to own a house," and during the Covid-19 pandemic, she achieved that goal. "I managed to get a house with no credit. Not one lick of credit," she said.

Angus Cloud used to wait tables

Angus Cloud is a Hollywood star now, but not long ago he was working as a server at an eatery in New York City, as evidenced by a video of him waiting tables that went viral on TikTok. The actor and model went from potentially earning $18 an hour to estimated net worth of $3 million.

Despite all of his fame, Cloud tries to remain as anonymous as he can. "I don't like to be seen in public, to be honest. It's a lot of cool perks and fun stuff I've been doing. But yeah, to be honest with you, it's really strange for me. I don't really like everybody to know who I am," he told InStyle in 2022. We imagine one of the perks he's referring to is the paychecks.

When he's not filming for "Euphoria," Cloud is building up his filmography. In 2021, Deadline announced he'd be part of the cast of a thriller called "Your Lucky Day"; he's also involved in a flick called "The Line," which also features Alex Wolff and Halle Bailey. On top of all that, he's found work as a model, posing for fashion houses all over the world, like Polo by Ralph Lauren, for which he's the newest face.

Eric Dane is no stranger to Hollywood

Anyone who's watched "Euphoria" has probably questioned why, to put it frankly, the parents are so terrible. Though not all of them are the absolute worst, some of them are truly awful at parenting, and that includes Cal Jacobs, who is played by Eric Dane. But we have good news: Dane seems to be a much better person in real life than the character he plays in "Euphoria."

Dane has been a fixture in Hollywood for years, acting in projects like "Grey's Anatomy" and "X-Men." Through his tenure in the industry, Dane's amassed an estimated $7 million net worth.

"Euphoria" is one of Dane's favorite projects to date. As he told Variety, "There aren't words to describe how much I love the show." The actor is also impressed by his talented co-stars. "These kids — I'm calling them kids, can you believe that? These young adults are so talented. It blows me away every time I watch their work." We're blown away, as well, Dane.

Alanna Ubach is a pro at saving

Alanna Ubach is a familiar Hollywood face, too, but you might not have been able to place her when you first saw her on "Euphoria" playing Suze Howard. After stalking her IMDb page, you may have recognized her as Judge Jeanine Pirro in "Bombshell" or Jo in "Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce." Or maybe you heard her voice as Mama Imelda in "Coco."

But if you're anything like us, your head spun when you remembered she played Serena in "Legally Blonde," Elle Woods's friend who suggests she take a Percocet instead of going to Harvard Law School, advice we can totally see her character giving her daughters on "Euphoria." Thanks to her years of steady work as an actor, Celebrity Net Worth estimates her net worth at $800 thousand.

Ubach's career has panned out exactly as she hoped. "Years ago, in my 20s, I told my manager, 'I wanna have an Easter egg career where people can't quite pinpoint where they've seen me before, but I'd like to be unrecognizable in everything I do,'" she told Vogue. Ubach had to be careful, though, knowing she might not earn the same as other actors. "To want to be a character actor, it's risky, because if you're not trying to be the lead in anything, you have to save your money," she warned.
