It’s settled then — everyone agrees Nate on Euphoria deserved to get beat up. Jacob Elordi, who plays the very unlikable jock on the HBO series, admitted during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that he’s on fans’ side when it comes to their beef with his character. During the season two premiere on Jan. 9, Nate was beaten unconscious by Fezco (Angus Cloud) as payback for having police raid his house and forcing him to flush all his drugs down the toilet.
“I think me as Jacob, I would love to beat him up. I would love to give him a clip around the ears,” the actor confessed to Jimmy. “But as Nate, I feel very bad for him. I had to get beat up. It sucked.” Luckily for Jacob, we’re able to separate the actor from his character. We still love you!
