“Euphoria” star Lukas Gage goes viral after sharing a video showing a director criticizing his apartment over Zoom.
Gage, 25, posted the awkward meeting on his social media accounts on Friday, showing him standing in front of his camera, his apartment visible in the background.
As he is about to stage a scene, a male director is heard telling another during the video call: “These poor people live in these small apartments, as if I’m watching his, you know, background, and he has his TV. “
“You are not silent,” Gage replied. “I know it’s a s —- y apartment … Give me this job so I can get a better one.”

“I think I know that voice. If that’s me thinking, he asked me to ‘audition’ for him once,” Rossum wrote on Instagram in Gage’s comments. “But not to read a scene. He said he knew I could shop. Just to get into his office in a bikini and spin. No joke. THAT was the question. My reps said he wanted to know. , if I was ‘fat right now.’ I think I said to my agent, ‘Don’t thank him and go f — himself.’
