You know her as the spunky dancer Rocky on Shake It Up. Star Zendaya talked to J-14 about what it was like auditioning for Shake It Up, the show’s fashion, and working with Selena Gomez!
Q: What was the audition for Shake It Up like?
Zendaya: The really cool part about my audition process was I originally came in for CeCe, and they asked me to read for Rocky. And I really felt Rocky. I had a connection with her character. And when I went with Bella it was like instant chemistry. So I guess it worked out for the best.
Q: What is your favorite thing about your character?
Z: I think just her genuine love and appreciation for people. She is so nice and so sweet. And she is kind of like the goody too shoes. I think that that’s what I love about her. She loves to help people — she loves to do charity work and stuff like that. But I also love that she still gets in trouble, you know. She’s just a regular girl, and I kind of want to be friends with her.
