Ever since she was a child, Zendaya had already made her mind that she will work as an actress.
The long hours of time spent in theater where her mother worked, and doing occasional plays, led Zendaya to develop remarkable skills such as dancing, acting and singing by the time she turned twelve.
After working successfully in Disney Channel and ABC for six years (2009-2015), now it came upon Zendaya who was now twenty to make a major decision regarding choosing her first acting debut in movie if she was committed in becoming Hollywood actress.
It wasn’t an easy start for Zendaya as majority of people still doubted her acting skills because of her long tenure with Disney Channel.
She wasn’t the first one who struggled as there were many actors who had worked for Disney previously also had hard time making their career in acting due to puberty changes or financial problems.
To ensure that she doesn’t repeat the past mistakes of actors who had worked before her, Zendaya made a decision to step back and wait for right opportunity.

Then in 2016, her patience paid off when she got her role in Marvel’s Spiderman: Homecoming. Though Zendaya had no idea that what was the name of the movie when she submitted her acting tape, she was just informed by her managers that it was girl in the movie.

Zendaya described her character as “Outspoken, quirky and smart” nevertheless she was pleased that the character “Michelle” was very different from previous stereotypical female character who was always damsel in distress. The director Jon Watts even recommended Zendaya to take inspiration from the fictional character Daria who is portrayed as a smart and cynical girl in American ninety’s Sitcom “Daria” in order to play the Michelle’s character.
When Zendaya met with her male co-star Tom Holland, the one thing she was mainly concerned about was her height difference with him as she was 5 feet and 10 inches while Tom Holland was 5 feet and 8 inches. But in the end all her worries vanished when she did the audition with him.
