20 Differences Between Euphoria & The Israeli Show It’s Based On
Parents Didn’t Appear On-Screen
The Israeli version of Euphoria took a page out of Charlie Brown‘s book when dealing with their adult characters. Variety reported that part of the appeal in adapting Euphoria was that HBO’s Drama SVP was interested in “what might exist when parents don’t exist,” and the Israeli series’ Wikipedia page describes any adult appearances as being rare and filmed at an angle that conceals their faces. The jury is still out on whether they only ever said, “Wah Wa Wa Wah.” HBO did choose to include parents in their telling of Rue’s story with her mother Leslie featuring heavily in the story, her father’s illness instigating her drug addiction, and Nate’s father hooking up with underage transgender women.
