1. Who Is Dominic Fike?

Fike is a musician and actor. If his name sounds familiar, it’s probably because he went viral after releasing his first album, Don’t Forget About Me, Demos, on SoundCloud. It didn’t take long for Fike to sign with one of the top music labels, Columbia Records.

2. Does He Play Elliot In 'euphoria'?

That’s correct. Elliot didn’t appear until season two, when he entered Rue’s (Zendaya) friend circle. The new episodes also introduced a love triangle between Elliot, Rue and Jules (Hunter Schafer), so cue the controversy.

In an interview with Variety, Fike revealed that he and Elliot are very similar. “I don’t have to do much acting. He’s exactly like me. It’s s*** I would say and s*** I would do,” he said. “I can’t wait to see where people go with that and for all the hate messages I’ll get on my Instagram…and going into hiding. I can’t wait.”

3. What Else Has He Been In?

Not much else, to be completely honest. Euphoria marked Fike’s debut as a television actor, though he’s no stranger to being in front of the camera. Prior to the HBO show, Fike appeared in several music videos.

4. Is He Single?

The answer is probably no. Fike previously dated Space Force star Diana Silvers, but it seems they’re no longer an item. That’s because the actor was recently spotted holding hands with his Euphoria co-star, Schafer, which has sparked dating rumors.
