Zendaya Gives Update On Filming 'Euphoria' Season 2

Zendaya Gives Update On Filming 'Euphoria' Season 2

Zendaya is sharing a little update on the status of the second season of Euphoria.

In her new InStyle cover feature, the 23-year-old actress and star of the show said that it needs to be safer before resuming filming.

“I do miss Rue. She’s like my little sister in a lot of ways. And going back to that character is a home base for me,” Zendaya said.

“There is a beautiful second season that has been written, but in order to do it the way we want to do it, we need to wait until it’s safer,” she continued. “There is an idea to do a couple of bridge episodes that can be shot safely but aren’t necessarily part of Season 2. So, hopefully, we will be able to do those in the coming months. I can’t wait.”

Production on Euphoria was just about to start filming, but like many shows, was shut down earlier this year due to the pandemic.

Zendaya was also recently nominated for her first Emmy award for her work as Rue. See how she reacted!

If you didn’t know, Zendaya and the creator of Euphoria, Sam Levinson, actually made a movie together during quarantine.

The Third 'Spider-Man' Movie Has Been Pushed Back

The Third 'Spider-Man' Movie Has Been Pushed Back

The next Spider-Man movie has been given a new release date once again!

The third installment, starring Tom Holland, Zendaya, and Jacob Batalon, was originally set to come out in July 2021, but was pushed to November 2021 due to the pandemic.

Now, the film will be released around Christmas-time, on December 17, 2021, Variety reports.

The Marvel/Sony Pictures movie took up the date that was previously taken by the long-awaited Avatar sequel, which was also pushed back by a year.

Fans weren’t sure if another movie would be released as Disney and Sony had decided to split and not work together on another film. Luckily, the two studios finally reached an agreement.

Spider-Man will also appear in future Marvel films.

“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously said.

Zendaya Talks Being a Light-Skinned Black Actress In Hollywood

Zendaya Talks Being a Light-Skinned Black Actress In Hollywood

Zendaya is opening up about not only being a young Black actress, but a light skinned Black actress in Hollywood.

The 23-year-old Euphoria star recently took part in a roundtable discussion with Variety, and other actresses, including Reese Witherspoon, Janelle Monae, and Jennifer Aniston.

During the discussion, Zendaya was asked if she still stands by when she said to her reps, “Even if the part calls for a white girl, put me up for it, get me in the room.”

“Absolutely. I also think it’s important being a light-skinned woman to recognize my privilege in that sense as well and make sure that I’m not taking up space where I don’t need to,” Zendaya said.

“I think that’s been a choice for myself. Our creator [Sam Levinson] wrote Rue based off his own experiences with addiction and he is a white man, so Rue could have been that. Rue had no description,” she continued. “So, I’m very grateful and hopefully I’ll be in a space like these ladies where I can create things and make space for women who look like me and women who don’t look like me. That’s the ultimate goal, to make room, [because] for a lot of Black creatives, it’s not a lack of talent but a lack of opportunity.”

Zendaya also opened up about the pressure she faces.

“I think, like a lot of artists, I’m my biggest critic, so some of it was internal — not wanting to make a mistake or worrying that maybe I didn’t have the room to make a mistake and wanting to make the right next move. But I also wanted to prove myself,” she said. “When Euphoria came along, I was very grateful because all those fears melted away and I felt like it was something that I had to be a part of. So, the fear became just, like, push yourself. If you go to work and you’re scared, that’s a good thing. You should be worried about whether you can do it.”

“It’s a constant thing. Being a young Disney actor, that’s one level, being a young Black woman is one level, and then being very hard on myself is another level. It’s also just a personal fear. I want to do a good job, and sometimes that can cause you to be fearful of things,” Zendaya added.
