YEM was able to do an interview with Elias Kacavas. Elias portrayed the role of young Cal. Elias was able to share many great details in the interview about many different things. He touched on his process of getting the part, how he plays his character, and what to expect in the future.

In the interview Elias was asked “Will the audience get to see more of young Cal?” He responded by saying “I don’t know. The response has been far beyond anything I have imagined, so who knows. If Euphoria does a season 3, and they want to show a Young Marsha’s backstory or if they are still riding off the story of Cal and Derek it would be a dream come true to return and play this character some more. We’ll see, who knows?”
