Former Disney star Zendaya talked about her role as Michelle Jones in Spiderman: Homecoming film which was released in 2017 and said that she’s still grateful for her appearance in the film although she had a small role.
Zendaya doesn’t hide her gratitude for her first project, ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ after she quitting from Disney. She said that she was excited to be in the movie.
During a recent interview with MJ Rodriguez as part of ‘Variety‘s Actors on Actors series,’ the 23-year-old actress said that she was lucky because MCU directors had already decided to re-create the character. She also added that perhaps they wanted to turn into a new version for representing Mary Jane. She stated:
“I was lucky because they already kind of wanted to re-create the character and turn her into a new version of what I think maybe the original Mary Jane character represented, and just do it in our own way in this Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
Zendaya continued to explain:
“I kind of came into it and there was already on the page a smart, quick, sharp young girl who comes off a bit quirky or offbeat. I have a lot of fun doing it. I like being able to do comedy and things that aren’t so heavy.”
She also discussed her role in the HBO teen drama ‘Euphoria,’ in which she plays a high school opioid addict named Rue Bennett. She said:
“Rue is obviously very different from me, but there’s something that feels like home. Something that feels very stepping into shoes that you somehow already have worn before. I just felt like I was falling into her a lot … that feeling of when a character feels like they’re your sister or your best friend. I care about Rue as if she’s someone in my life. And I just want her to be OK.”
Zendaya’s role as Rue in Euphoria was loved by her fans, but the young star does not seem very eager to play in drama series.
