Sydney Sweeney battles her dark side in Webtoon's latest short film

Fred & Farid Los Angeles continues the series for the webcomics platform

Sydney Sweeney and…Sydney Sweeney (“Euphoria”) are polar opposites—one light, one dark—in the latest iteration of the Webtoon shot-at-home series “Stories to Obsess Over.”

The coral-colored actress plays Persephone, the goddess of spring, torn in two by the conflicting sides of her romance with Hades. It is the central thread of “Lore Olympus,” one of the most popular webcomics on the Webtoon platform, a modern retelling of the soap operatic schemes and adventures of the Greek deities.

Fans of the story often cosplay as characters on TikTok and Instagram, and Sweeney does her part with the help of makeup artist Anthony H. Nguyen, custom wigs by Pamela Neal and colorist Naomi Knights and a custom wardrobe by Mindy Le Brock.

Previous films in the campaign from Fred & Farid Los Angeles put Alia Shawkat and Kimiko Glenn in the spotlight, each shooting at home and reenacting characters from their favorite webcomics.
