The actress starred on Disney Channel's 'Shake It Up' from 2010 to 2013.
Zendaya wants some moments to be private. In a new interview for British Vogue's October Issue, the 25-year-old actress revealed that she said no to having her first-ever kiss while filming Shake It Up on Disney Channnel.
"I remember being on Shake It Up and being like, 'I'm not gonna do this. I'm going to kiss him on the cheek because I haven't been kissed yet so I don't want the kiss to be on camera", said Zendaya.
Though the star didn't directly name who she meant to kiss, her character Rocky Blue kissed several love interests on the cheek throughout the show. For example, Rocky kissed Deuce Martinez (Adam Irigoyen) on the cheek in season 2. In season 3, Zendaya's character and her eventual love interest Logan Hunter (Leo Howard) accidentally kissed each other on the cheek while dancing together.
Zendaya appeared on Shake It Up alongside Bella Thorne from 2010 to 2013. After the show's ending, she went to headline K.C. Undercover from 2015 to 2018.
The Euphoria alum previously shared how "grateful" she is for her time on the Disney Channel series, explaining that she "learned so much from that experience".
"It's just kind of been this slow progression, and I am happy that it's all been to prove it to myself and not to anybody else, you know?" she said of her career evolution during Variety's Actors on Actors roundtable. "I embrace it a little bit. It's part of my heritage, to a degree."
