Zendaya Wants to 'Tap into That Super-Villain Vibe' for Her Next Role.


Euphoria and MCU star Zendaya shares that, after playing lots of good guys, she'd take a supervillain role in the future if given the opportunity.

The "Euphoria" Emmy winner and star of next year’s "Challengers" and "Dune: Part Two" said during a video for Elle magazine, below, that she hopes to channel an evil character for her next role.

"I would love to play a villain of sorts," Zendaya said. "Tap into that evil, supervillain vibe. Whatever that manifests inů"

The "Spider-Man: No Way Home" actress added, "I don’t think necessarily in a superhero sense but in an emotional sense. I feel like I usually play the good guy, so I’d like to play the bad guy."

If Zendaya was not acting she gave two options, one within the entertainment industry and one if she wasn’t in the industry.

"I think within the industry, I would be a director, which is something I hope to do one day," she said. "And I think outside, I feel like I would have probably followed in the footsteps of my parents and become a teacher. I love kids, I love learning and I love teaching."

Zendaya made history as the youngest recipient of the Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, an accolade she earned for ger portrayal of Rue Bennett in HBO's Euphoria. Zendaya, who began her career starring alongside Bella Thorne in the Disney Channel's Shake it Up in 2010, is known for roles in films including The Greatest Showman, Super-Man, Malcolm & Marie and Dune. She has also served as a producer on a number of projects including Euphoria and Malcolm & Marie.
