Zendaya has made quite a name for herself in Hollywood as an actress, singer, fashion icon, and leader in advocacy for women’s rights and racial justice. As her fame continues to rise, she has hopes of one day sitting in the director’s chair.
Complex says in a recent British Vogue interview, the “Spider-Man: No Way Home” actress discussed her interest in becoming a filmmaker. She said, “If I ever do become a filmmaker, I know that the leads of my films will always be black women. I gotta hurry up and figure out how to f*cking become a director, man. I’m trying, I’m learning every day, I really am. There’s so much I want to do.”
Sam Levinson, who directed Zendaya in Malcolm & Marie and Euphoria said he believes that Zendaya will be “an astonishing filmmaker.”
