Laura Harrier was disappointed when she learned that Zendaya was part of the cast
“After I did my audition for Spider-Man, before I had heard anything, it came out a few weeks later that Zendaya was going to be cast, so I thought I hadn’t gotten the job. She should have it “The actress said in a 2020 statement to Net-A-Porter about the confusing moment where you thought your colleague had taken your job away.
The physical resemblance between the two artists led her to believe that Zendaya would be Liz Allan, but she was eventually cast as MJ. “I thought it was amazing and revolutionary for Marvel to put us both in those roles and not talk about our skin color. We were just girls who went to school in New York and that’s what New York City looks like “He argued about his involvement in Spider-Man.
Harrier also spoke about his relationship with the protagonist of Euphoria and revealed that they became very close. “We had a wonderful time making that movie. Zendaya and I are friends now and I am so grateful to her. My career would be much scarier and more difficult without the good friends I have made.”, he concluded.
The artist will not be in Spider-Man: no way home, but she had other exciting projects in her career: in cinema she appeared in BlacKkKlansman Y Balance Not Symmetry, while on television he was in Fahrenheit 451 Y Hollywood con Ryan Murphy.
