Zen­daya has al­ready got quite a fol­low­ing. She’s not only racked up 42.9m In­sta­gram fol­low­ers, she’s also a fan favourite – teen girls scream her name if they see her in the street.

While it’s only her big sec­ond film, Zen­daya steals the show in new flick Spi­der-man: Home­com­ing. Play­ing
