3. She calls her Euphoria character "The female Patrick Bateman"

In a November 2018 interview in V Magazine, Demie described Maddy as: "the female Patrick Bateman, minus the killing. It's the craziest sh*t I’ve ever read in my life. I can't say much, because people are trying to hack into all our emails to get the scripts. But the music is incredible and the visuals will be stunning."

4. Maddy is not at all like Alexa

In an interview with W Magazine, Alexa said that Maddy isn't at all like her in real life, proving that this young lady has some real acting chops! She said: "Maddy pulls me out of my comfort zone. Even the way I dress, I don’t really wear skirts — I’m more tomboy. She wears whatever the hell she wants, and I love that. I got to explore this other side. But with all the sex and volatile relationships, that's so not me, and that was one of the hardest parts, to be vulnerable in that way. Even with the nudity — I don’t know if you’ve seen my Instagram, but it’s mostly portrait shots. I don’t post bikini pictures. I’m just not that way. I don’t judge anyone that is — sometimes I wish I was more free in that way — but it was a challenge.
