3 things about Euphoria’s soulful star Dominic Fike.
A down-to-earth nature with a story that totally matches Euphoria’s profound narrative.
The Florida native rising star moved from home to home while growing up, facing things that until today have an impact on his dramatic vocals and lyrics.
Beneath his strong attitude, the Apple logo under his eye and his flirting with skateboard aesthetics, Dominic Fike is a true statement that reflects a complex yet genuine generation.
Check 3 facts about the singer-turned-actor that might explain why we all seem to identify with him a little bit.
1 - Streetwear is one of his creative expressions.
Besides being a longstanding artist and portraying Elliot in HBO Max’s hit, Dominic makes minimalist yet bold choices to match his now official girlfriend Hunter Schafer’s fits — all-black leather silhouettes seem to be his #1 on a constant basis.
2 - He and Elliot are almost the same.
Fike’s own words to Variety claimed that he actually doesn’t have to do much acting since Elliot is exactly like him when younger: A product of a complex home and intensely enigmatic. The only difference between them? Dominic has been sober to cope better with fame pressures after having talked to other artists that have been a star longer, like Justin Bieber.
3 - Dominic’s stans were a thing long before Euphoria.
The rapper boosted his career after dropping music on SoundCloud and signing a US$4M contract with Columbia Records, from which he took money to hire a lawyer to help reduce his mother’s prison time. His first album Don’t Forget About Me was released in 2017 and besides having worked with Bieber, he also collaborated with Brockhampton, Anderson .Paak, Paul McCartney & Halsey.
