Zendaya Told Disney Channel To Change the Original Title of 'K.C. Undercover'

Zendaya Told Disney Channel To Change the Original Title of 'K.C. Undercover'

Zendaya knew when she signed on to do Disney Channel’s K.C. Undercover, she had a lot of power.

The 20-year-old actress was fresh off the success of Shake It Up, and wanted to make sure her voice was heard by the network.

“I got in a room with the heads of Disney Channel,” Z told Vogue, explaining that the original title of the show was Super Awesome Katy. “I was like, ‘The title is whack. That’s gonna change.’”

She also wasn’t a fan of her character’s name…

“Do I look like a Katy to you?” she told them. (We love that she sticks up for her beliefs!)

In case you missed it, be sure to check out more highlights from Z‘s amazing Vogue cover story!

Zendaya and Laura Harrier Stun at 'Spider-Man: Homecoming's NYC Photocall

Zendaya and Laura Harrier Stun at 'Spider-Man: Homecoming's NYC Photocall

Zendaya and Laura Harrier both look amazing at the photocall for their new flick, Spider-Man: Homecoming, held at The Whitby Hotel in New York City on Sunday (June 25).

The two actresses were joined by co-stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Tony Revolori, Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, and director Jon Watts.

“She’s got an edge to her. She speaks her mind, says what she thinks, but for some reason it comes off likable,” Zendaya recently shared about her character, Michelle.

She adds, “It’s very dry. It’s very real…she’s super smart, very intellectual, and because she’s so smart she doesn’t know how to interact with other kids. So she doesn’t have friends.”

This is one thing that Zendaya connects with her on: “I think there are a lot of kids out there like that, including myself. So I relate to her in more ways than one.”

FYI: Zendaya wore an Altuzarra dress.

'Spider-Man: Homecoming's Zendaya Says Co-Star Tom Holland Is 'A Really Good Person'

'Spider-Man: Homecoming's Zendaya Says Co-Star Tom Holland Is 'A Really Good Person'

Zendaya and Tom Holland are complete friendship goals.

The two Spider-Man: Homecoming stars have been globe trotting around the world together showing us all just how amazing their friendship is.

In a new interview, Zendaya opened up about working with the cute British actor.

“He’s great. I think the most important thing to me is that he is a good person, and it’s good to know that the person who gets to play your favorite superhero is actually a nice dude,” she said. “He loves doing this.”


Zendaya shared that he kind of worked his butt off for the film, too.

“When we were shooting in Atlanta, one of the things that was nice for me is it really felt like half of the movie, at least, it felt like we were just shooting this awkward teen coming-of-age story. It was like a comedy. And then you step back and you remember, oh my gosh, this is Spider-Man. Then just yesterday, Tom was just flipping off these buildings and swinging form things in a harness.”

“He was working every single day and quite literally going from being Peter Parker to Spider-Man in an outfit change,” she adds. “So he killed it, and I’m definitely proud to be a part of this experience.”

Spider-Man: Homecoming hits theaters next month.

Zendaya Loves That 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Celebrates Diversity

Zendaya Loves That 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Celebrates Diversity

If there’s one thing about Spider-Man: Homecoming that star Zendaya loves, it’s the diversity.

The actress, who plays Michelle in the upcoming flick, spoke with EW about her new movie and how it celebrates diversity.

“That was one of my favorite parts about this movie is the diversity of the cast. It’s reflecting what New York looks like,” she shared. “It should be represented in that way.”

“I think everybody is also very distinct characters and it’s fun to see how everybody works with each other, and I love the awkwardness and the funny that comes out of those real moments in high school that we’ve all been through,” Zendaya added. “The big difference with this movie is the fact that he’s 15 and you really get to see what it would be like if a 15-year-old guy had these powers.”

She continued, “Of course, they’re not going to do everything right. They’re not going to be perfect. They’re going to mess up. They’re going to be a 15-year-old superhero; and I think they did a really great job of capturing that because that’s what makes Spider-Man so real for everybody is that he’s just a kid and just a kid from Queens.”

Zendaya is pictured below, hanging out with some friends in New York City on Wednesday afternoon (June 21).

Zendaya Didn't Know Which Role She Was Auditioning For in 'SpiderMan: Homecoming'

Zendaya shows off her fierce sense of style in a Sies Marjan ensemble during her appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in New York City this week.

The actress, who plays Michelle in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming movie, revealed she didn’t know which role she was actually auditioning for.

“No, I did not! I knew I was auditioning for ‘Girl In Movie’, it was great getting into character [laughs],” she revealed. “In fact, I didn’t actually even know what kind of character [it was], because my character is very interesting.”

Zendaya adds that Michelle was described as “kind of a loner; she is super-intellectual, very dug-dry humor with one-liners, pops in and pops out.”

“I didn’t even know what character I was going to play until I got there and sign the Non-Disclosure and then read the script.”

If you want to know, here’s who Michelle really is!

Zendaya Spills on Her 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Character Michelle

Zendaya Spills on Her 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Character Michelle

Zendaya is spilling some more details about her Spider-Man: Homecoming character!

The 20-year-old entertainer chatted about the film during an appearance on Good Morning America on Tuesday (June 20) in New York City.

Zendaya once again confirmed that she is not playing Mary Jane but a character named Michelle.

“I keep trying to tell everybody my name is Michelle in the movie. That is what my name is. I am not lying to you. I swear,” Zendaya laughed.

She added, “she is a very interesting character, very different than anything we’ve ever seen before. She’s very intellectual, very smart, which I think leads her to not really be able to socially interact with anybody her own age. So she’s a bit of a loner. But I think she likes it that way. I like her outspokenness and her wittiness and quickness. But I’m definitely Michelle, I’m not lying.”
