Lukas Gage calls out ‘un-muted’ director for mocking his flat on Zoom audition

Written by on 22 November 2020

Euphoria star Lukas Gage has shared the awkward moment a director insulted his flat during a Zoom audition – without realising he was not muted.

Just before he is about to perform a scene, a male director heard telling someone else on the video call: “These poor people live in these tiny apartments. Like I’m looking at his background, and he’s got his TV and you know…”

The 25-year-old winces before pointing out: “Yeah, unmuted.”

He added: “I know, it’s a s***ty apartment. That’s why give me this job, so I can get a better one!”

When the director – whose identity is unknown – realised his mistake, he told Gage: “Oh my God, I’m so, so sorry.”

Gage posted the video to his Twitter and Instagram accounts with the note: “psa: If youre a s**t talking director make sure to mute ur s**t on zoom mtgings.”

He has so far declined to name the director, who spoke with an English accent.
