Euphoria's Zendaya in 2021

Euphoria's Zendaya is one of the leading rising stars in Hollywood today! Born in Oakland, California on September 1, 1996, the actress's full name is Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman. She grew up with her parents and five-half siblings and had always had an interest in acting. As her mother was the house manager of a nearby theatre, Zendaya would perform and train in their programs. She also attended a performative arts school, which further propagated her successful career now. 

In her teens, Zendaya began modeling for companies like Macy's and Old Navy, before landing the lead role in Disney's Shake It Up. The show's premiere became the second-highest rated premiere ever in Disney's history! 

Euphoria's Zendaya - this is her in 2020!

She starred in the hit series from 2010-13, and later appeared in Dancing with the Stars at age 16 - the youngest competitor on the dancing show ever and placing 2nd! That was until 14-year old Willow Shields took that ranking. Still, at such a young age, what can't she do??

Zendaya also starred in 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming and its sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The third Spider-Man: No Way Home starring her and Tom Holland will be released in 2021! While her character in Euphoria endures dark times, her "MJ" role in Spider-Man is able to enjoy some more fun moments!

Today, the actress and singer is working on the second season of Euphoria. You can check out the first season on both HBO and Netflix! You can also check out Zendaya in four new films: 

  • Dune
  • Malcolm & Marie
  • Finest Kind
  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

Euphoria's Zendaya has earned her a Satellite Award for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama, and an Emmy for her role. We're ready for season 2 of Euphoria already!
