Martha Kelly, who played Laurie in the second season of "Euphoria," opened up about working with the young actors in the series, including Zendaya.

In a recent conversation with Variety, the actress shared why working with young actors felt "intimidating," and recalled her early days.

"It is very intimidating, because they are exceptionally gifted. They are beyond top-level young actors — they are next level," the 53-year-old actress said, before adding she was just a comedian "who sometimes gets to do fun acting jobs on the side."

"But on the flip-side, everyone was welcoming, and Zendaya was just very easygoing and lovely about my nervousness working with her and with some of the other folks on set," Kelly said.

Kelly said she was not like these young actors at all.

The "Dual" star further explained she was "struck by how hard they all work and how professional they are at that age." The actress recalled she used to quit jobs whenever she felt like when she was in her 20s.

Kelly also shared she had "zero focus" when she was in her 20s, and looking at these young actors she is impressed.

"They’re pretty impressive, and it has made such an impression on me — especially Zendaya, who is in almost every scene and never complained, never looked or acted like she was tired or flustered, or anything like that," she added. "I’m in awe, still."

Kelly opened up about her own character last week, and revealed she didn't audition for her role.

"I didn’t audition. It was the very beginning of 2020, before the pandemic, that someone from Euphoria reached out to my manager and said they were thinking about me for a role, a really interesting kind of villain,” Kelly told Vulture on Feb. 10.

The actress explained she accepted the offer and everything shut down, due to which they ended up filming the series much later.

The second season of "Euphoria" is streaming on HBO Max. The series revolves around a group of teens struggling with finances, social media, drugs and love.

On the work front, Kelly lent her voice to the animated sitcom, "The Great North," which was dropped last year. She also appeared on a TV series, "American Gods" from 2017 to 2021.
