She continued to share how her family provides her with grounding and calm moments amid the commotion of Hollywood, from long shoots to ongoing press cycles.

"I try to incorporate them into my life as much as possible, whether it's talking with my cousins every other day or going home," revealed the Emmy nominee. She added that if she has the chance, she’ll head back home to Spokane, Wash., to spend time with her family.

"It was hard because L.A. is very different from Spokane," continued Sweeney. "The cost of a big city versus a small city is vastly different and challenging as well."

Sweeney’s parents, Lisa and Steven, both separately still reside outside of California. Lisa has remained in Spokane, while Steven moved to a remote ranch in Mexico.

The former couple divorced as Sydney began skyrocketing to fame.

“My parents sacrificed so much to support my dream, and they lost so much during it,” she told Variety in August 2023. "I just felt a responsibility to show them that it was worth it."

She confessed that she’ll “never know” if their sacrifices to help her pursue acting contributed to her parents' divorce. “I think as a kid, as the eldest, I feel a responsibility. They’ll say no, or they’ll say yes, depending on what fight it is. But I’ll always feel responsible. But that’s okay," said Sydney in reference to her younger brother, Trent.

The Anyone But You actress also shared in the Variety interview how “unbelievable” it is to show her mom “this world.”

“My mom grew up with barely anything. She got her GED when she was 16; she worked five jobs to put herself through school; she took care of her brothers,” said the actress. “She takes care of everyone.”
