‘Euphoria’ fans believe that ‘Spider-Man’ star Tom Holland made a secret cameo in the HBO show’s latest episode.

‘Euphoria’, which stars Holland‘s partner Zendaya, is currently airing its second season with episodes released weekly, and Holland has previously discussed how he has been “petitioning to secure a role in the show”.

In Sunday night’s (February 20) episode, titled ‘The Theater and It’s Double’, Lexi Howard (played by Maude Apatow) hosted a play at school, attended by Cassie (Sydney Sweeney) and Nate (Jacob Elordi).

Eagle-eyed fans have noticed a person who looks very similar to Holland sitting in the crowd for the play, just behind Cassie and Nate.

As the show’s second season continues to air, Zendaya has defended criticism levelled at ‘Euphoria’ that it glorifies substance abuse.

Last month, Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E) issued a statement about HBO’s hit teen drama saying that it “chooses to misguidedly glorify and erroneously depict high school student drug use, addiction, anonymous sex, violence, and other destructive behaviours as common and widespread in today’s world”.

But Zendaya, who portrays protagonist addict Rue Bennett in the series, has denied that it glamorises drug-taking and instead aims to promote empathy about addiction.

She told Entertainment Weekly: “Our show is in no way a moral tale to teach people how to live their life or what they should be doing. If anything, the feeling behind ‘Euphoria’, or whatever we have always been trying to do with it, is to hopefully help people feel a little bit less alone in their experience and their pain. And maybe feel like they’re not the only one going through or dealing with what they’re dealing with.”

Meanwhile, Holland has said that he is weighing up whether to quit acting at the age of 25, citing feelings of a “midlife crisis”.

The Spider-Man star said in a new interview that he might swap his acting career for a more rigorous return to his dancing roots. Holland played Billy Elliott on the West End as a child and was recently cast in a biopic about Fred Astaire, long considered Hollywood’s greatest dancer.

“I don’t even know if I want to be an actor,” he told Sky News in an interview to promote his new film, ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’.

“I started acting when I was 11 and I haven’t done anything else, so I’d like to go and do other things. Genuinely, I’m sort of…having a midlife crisis – at 25, I’m having like a pre-midlife crisis,” he said.
