Halsey is set to make her acting debut alongside Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney in The Player’s Table, based on Jessica Goodman’s novel They Wish They Were Us.
The show does not yet have a network attached. Halsey will also produce. Set at an exclusive Long Island prep school, high school senior Jill Newman (Sweeney) works to uncover the truth about her best friend’s death three years ago and the role she and her fellow “players” – members of the secret society that rules the school – may have had in it.
Halsey will play Rachel Calloway, a “formidable, emotionally troubled” young woman who ignites Jill’s journey of finding the truth behind Shaila’s murder.
The role marks a reunion for Sweeney and Halsey. The duo first met when they teamed for Halsey's music video for “Graveyard.” The duo hit it off and Sweeney sent her the project, hoping that they’d work together again on it.
