Zendaya is one the hottest actresses in Hollywood, but she’s also looking forward to a career behind the camera.
During a sit-down with actor Colman Domingo for Interview, the 25-year-old explained how she is honing her potential directing skills on movie sets.
“The idea of trying to direct in the future excites me,” Zendaya said.
“That’s why I’m on set so much. When I’m not in it, I’m right there trying to learn. I go around and I ask our crew members, ‘What are you doing today? Can you explain it to me?’ Because we’ve got some real vets in the game. So, the hope is that I’ll be able to, one day, make the things that I want to see.”
Domingo asked for an example of the type of story she would be interested in and the Emmy winner replied, “A simple love story about two Black girls.”
She continued, “I don’t want it to be rooted in anything other than just a story about two people falling in love and that’s it. Something simple and beautiful, that leaves you happy and wanting to fall in love yourself.”
The highly anticipated second season of Zendaya’s HBO series Euphoria premieres on January 9, 2022. The new season also stars Domingo.
