Sydney Sweeney once accepted to research her way into Hollywood. The Euphoria actress is one of the top trending names in the industry today. But like most actors, she also went through her own struggles, from doing small roles and impressing her way to now leading on the big screens. One such smaller role was in a big Quentin Tarantino movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

The multi-starred comedy-drama was not short on big names, but each one had proved itself. Like every actor has a method to prepare for their roles, Sweeney did, too. She played the role of Snake, one of the real and youngest members of the Manson family. In an interview last year, she revealed her exact process of preparing for the role.
