Claim to be famous: An acting novice who made her television debut in Season 2 of “Happiness,” Miss Cherry plays Faye, the big-eyed, smiling girlfriend of a drug dealer who can’t seem to escape heroin and violence. “When I got the role, I was still not sure if I had such great acting ability,” Ms. Cherry said. Her confidence grew as the show’s creator, Sam Levinson, “continued to rewrite everything,” she said, giving her character more screen time. “I’m still in shock at how big of a response,” she said.
Big break: Her life story is as heretical as any of the “Euphoria” storylines. In 2015, a few days after she turned 18, she ran away from small town Pennsylvania to Miami to become a porn star. “I am obsessed with the adult industry,” she said. “I managed to get away the right way and know that if you’re a legal adult and you leave a note, they can’t report you missing.” After signing with a talent management agency, she moved to Los Angeles, where she stood out in the porn industry by creating quirky Instagram stories.
Mr Levinson, it turns out, is an avid follower on her Instagram and in 2019 was contacted through a casting agent. At first, Miss Cherry thought it was a scam. “I said, ‘No thanks, this looks fake,'” she said. But she eventually auditioned and won the producers’ win. After the season, she decided to retire. “My whole adult life, I’ve been doing something that people have an opinion on,” she said.
Latest project Her breakout role in “Euphoria” opened up many other creative outlets. This spring, she modeled in a hot commercial campaign for Versace and Sense in which she wrestles with a robot that specializes in snatching wallets and will appear in a Steve Madden commercial this fall. She is also creating art (her collage was featured in a Los Angeles Arts Show in March) and hip-hop (she posted three songs on SoundCloud).

Industry change What is the biggest difference between Hollywood and the pornography industry? “For some reason, people will pay for Hollywood stuff, but they won’t pay for porn,” Ms. Cherry said. A difference? “I used to be obsessed with what my body looked like, but I no longer feel that way,” she says.
