Why Pippa From The Voyeurs Looks So Familiar

On September 10, Amazon Prime Video gave suspense fans a gift with the release of "The Voyeurs." This erotic thriller puts a contemporary spin on the formula perfected by Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece "Rear Window" and features a cast of stellar young talent.

Pippa and Thomas are a young couple who've just moved into a swanky new apartment in Montreal. The towering windows of their living room not only look chic, but they also give them an unobstructed view into the apartments of their neighbors. Although it starts off as innocent curiosity, they become completely entranced with spying on the couple across the street — Julia (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) and Seb (Ben Hardy) — whose lives they begin monitoring. While Thomas starts to feel bad about the lengths they go to in order to keep tabs on Julia and Seb, Pippa is unable to stop herself. She finds that the more she gets involved, the deeper she's drawn in. And she soon learns the hard way that sometimes it's better to mind your own business.

In the film, Thomas is played by "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" and "Detective Pikachu" star Justice Smith, while American actor Sydney Sweeney plays Pippa. Whether you recognized her right away or had more of a "Where have I seen her before ..." reaction to Sweeney, there's a good chance that "The Voyeurs" is far from the first time she's graced your screen.

Here's where else you've seen Sydney Sweeney aka Pippa from "The Voyeurs."

Sydney Sweeney had memorable recurring roles on Sharp Objects and The Handmaid's Tale

Although she's a relatively young talent, Sweeney's career on screen stretches back over a decade. In her early days, she had a multitude of guest-starring roles on popular TV shows like "Criminal Minds," where she played a young murder victim, and "Grey's Anatomy," where she played the daughter of a patient.

In 2018, Sweeney got a more substantial role on the HBO miniseries "Sharp Objects." The show follows reporter Camille Preaker (Amy Adams) as she investigates a gruesome murder in her Missouri hometown. Through flashbacks, viewers learn about Camille's troubled past, including her stay at a psychiatric hospital. It's there that she met and befriended a teenager named Alice, played by Sweeney. Unfortunately, their friendship ended in tragedy, something that continues to haunt Camille into the present day.

Hulu's dystopian drama "The Handmaid's Tale" also gave Sweeney a complex character to play. In Season 2, she recurred as Eden, a teenager raised in Gilead's extremist religious environment who is forced into a marriage with Nick Blaine (Max Minghella), the lover of handmaid June (Elisabeth Moss). As with most characters on the series, Eden's season-long arc is profoundly bleak.

You've likely seen Sydney Sweeney on Euphoria

While Sweeney has found plenty of work on TV, she's also appeared in several prominent movies in the past decade. She had a small role in the neo-noir cult classic "Under the Silver Lake" and portrayed a member of the Manson Family in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time In Hollywood."

But great TV projects have continued to be Sweeney's bread and butter. If you're a fan of HBO's incendiary teen drama "Euphoria," then you know her as Cassie Howard, the tragically lovesick older sister of Lexi (Maude Apatow). During the show's first season, Cassie struggled to navigate the ways in which rumors about her past were affecting her current relationship with McKay (Algee Smith).

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Sweeney said that she was "blown away" when she learned about Cassie's planned storyline during her initial discussions with show creator Sam Levinson. She went on to add, "In the beginning I didn't quite know who Cassie was, and then she slowly started building, and I like the mystery of her ..."

Sydney Sweeney was part of the ensemble of The White Lotus

HBO's "The White Lotus," written and directed by Mike White, is a true ensemble series that focuses on the wealthy guests and put-upon staff at an exclusive resort in Hawaii. Among those guests is the Mossbacher family.

Mother Nicole (Connie Britton) is a prominent businesswoman with some questionable opinions on contemporary social politics, while her husband Mark (Steve Zahn) begins their vacation dealing with a possible health crisis and the revelation of some deep family secrets. The drama the parents bring to the show barely scratches the surface of what the Mossbacher children are dealing with, though. Nicole and Mark's daughter Olivia (Sweeney) is constantly at odds with her brother Quinn (Fred Hechinger) and has an increasingly fraught relationship with her friend Paula (Brittany O'Grady), who she invited along for the trip.

While working on the critically acclaimed show, Sweeney gained a diehard fan in White. He told Palm Springs Life, "There's a magnetism about her that's hard to — having done this awhile — put into words ... I just want to watch her. She's so surprising."

Considering how many strong roles Sydney Sweeney has landed in her career thus far, it's clear that White isn't the only person who is entranced by the actor's magnetism. You can check her out in "The Voyeurs," which is currently streaming on Amazon Prime.
