Zendaya has given a rare insight into her relationship with Tom Holland—a.k.a. Spiderman—detailing how he supported her through difficult Euphoria season two scenes.

For those who don’t know, in the hit HBO show Zendaya plays Rue Bennett, who is depicted as battling drug addiction and withdrawal throughout the sophomore season. Thankfully Rue didn’t die in the finale, despite the troubling fan theories that she would.

Of course, the scenes can be emotional to film, so Zendaya has revealed just how important it was having Tom—who she's been dating for (as far as we know) nearly a year now—to get her through those difficult storylines and help her detach from the show.

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Zendaya said that while filming Euphoria, he must have visited the set at least 30 times—what a guy!  It's no surprise we spotted him in those behind-the-scenes snaps.

Detailing what his presence meant to her, she said: “I think it's great to have that support and love around you because you need that.

“This isn't an easy job, so it's good to have that to free you up from it every now and then.”

However, Zendaya has revealed she needs a 'healthy break’ from the show, as understandably, the harrowing scenes took their toll on the actress, who was quick to issue trigger warnings ahead of each upcoming episode.

She also took the opportunity to give us another tantalizing hint about Tom’s Euphoria cameo. When asked if it was in fact him in the crowd of Lexi’s (Maude Apatow) play, she smiled and said: “I don’t know. Who knows? The world may never know.”—That’s a yes, surely?

With Euphoria season 3 confirmed, fans may very well get another Tom cameo—but if not, there may at least be more on-set snaps of him visiting and supporting his ‘MJ.’
