“Nobody wanted to believe me!” – Zendaya opens up about the fan reaction to her Spider-Man: Homecoming role


We believe you, Zendaya… we think.

Spider-Man: Homecoming has swung its way into Irish cinemas, and we managed to grab a few minutes to chat to its two young leads, Tom Holland and Zendaya.

You can check out our full sit down with the terrific Tom Holland by clicking right here.

The mononymous Zendaya (known to her mam as Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman) has previous experience on the Disney channel, starring in Shake It Up, Frenemies and Zapped since she made her debut at just 13 years old.

Still a youth at age 20, Zendaya has secured the much-discussed role of enigmatic high-school student Michelle, given the suspiciously familiar moniker of ‘MJ’ by her friends.

In an interview with Rory Cashin, Zendaya discusses the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming and the amazing fan reaction to her role in the film.


For a taste of the film itself, we have the trailer right here…
