Cape Town - Zendaya would have been a teacher if she hadn't become an actress.

The Euphoria star's parents are both educators and, as they are a "major influence" in her life, she thinks she would have followed in their footsteps if she hadn't found success with her passion.

The 22-year-old actress began her career when she was just 12 years old and will always be grateful for the support of her parents, who vowed to "stand behind" her.
