Zendaya Coleman, generally known by her performing name of Zendaya, is celebrating her 21st birthday today. She grew up in a theater-oriented household and first became known at 14, when she was cast as Rocky Blue on Disney Channel’s Shake It Up. A year later, she launched a singing career with the single “Swag It Out,” and followed up with the electropop album Zendaya in 2013.
Since the end of Shake It Up’s run, Zendaya has made a few TV guest appearances, and was a voice actress for the 2013 film Super Buddies. She had her first major feature film earlier this year as Michelle “MJ” Jones in Spider-Man: Homecoming and will have a supporting role in the P. T. Barnum biopic The Greatest Showman later this year. And since 2015 she has starred as K. C. Cooper on Disney’s spy-sitcom series, K. C. Undercover.
