Zendaya Will Always Cast Black Women as Leads

Sam Levinson, who directed Zendaya in Euphoria and Malcolm & Marie, said she will become “an astonishing filmmaker.”

Zendaya has been booked and busy these last few years. But acting is not all she aspires to do. In her recent cover story for British Vogue, the 25-year-old Dune star shared she also wants to direct.

When asked if she plans to tell her future children about the current Black American experience she said, “I don’t know what I’m going to tell them. Hopefully, they’ll be able to look at what I’ve done and my body of work and see it.”

Zendaya strongly believes that art is a “huge catalyst for change”. When it comes to her future work, she plans to take a stand, pledging that, “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**king become a director, man. I’m trying, I’m learning every day, I really am. There’s so much I want to do.”

Zendaya first rose to fame as a teenage spy on her Disney series KC Undercover. She went on to star in box office hits, including Spider-Man: Homecoming. The actress also recently won her first Emmy for her role in HBO’s Euphoria. Her latest project Dune will drop in October.
