Hollywood is rife with tales of Disney stars dominating headlines, from Miley Cyrus to Raven-Symoné, but no Disney alum has ever had such a crystal clear reputation as Zendaya. She’s an actress in 'Spider-Man' and in a daring HBO hit series but she’s also a fashion icon, author, dancer, designer, R&B singer, activist—oh, and did we mention she's only in her early twenties?
In less than a quarter of her life, she’s had the combined careers of at least five stars. And now she's kicked off what will surely be a long life of awards shows with her first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Drama Actress for her lead role in 'Euphoria.'
But what truly separates her from the growing crowd of young celebrities is that she is all talent and passion, and no scandal or controversy. She’s got a good head on her shoulders, and her skills only seem to sharpen with time.
From ‘Spider-Man’ to ‘The Greatest Showman,’ she’s proved her blockbuster-making ability. Now, with the HBO series ‘Euphoria,’ she has shed Disney completely (using fabricated on-screen drugs instead of real ones).
Not to mention she’s a fashion chameleon who could probably make a garbage bag look haute couture.
