Tim Waters, general manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: ‘Zendaya just exudes cool.
‘Not only that, she uses her celebrity status to join conversations, thoughtfully, on important social issues.
‘She is unapologetically herself – and we, along with her fans, love that about her.
‘With rumours circulating that Zendaya is soon to become a Londoner herself, the timing to pay homage to her at Madame Tussauds London could not be better.
‘We know her fans will be lining up for the chance to ‘meet’ their idol when Zendaya’s figure arrives in our Awards Party zone.’
Zendaya is currently dating her British Spider-Man co-star Tom Holland.
In January, she met football star Heung-Min Son with her Spurs supporting boyfriend, after Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal revealed that she told them not to date ahead of working together on the franchise.
Pascal told the New York Times: ‘I took Tom and Zendaya aside, separately, when we first cast them and gave them a lecture. Don’t go there — just don’t. Try not to.’
She joked that they ‘all ignored me’, having given the exact same advice to Spidey alumni Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, who dated for a few years before breaking things off in 2015.
Zendaya and Tom have been pretty busy following the release of No Way Home, which became the first pandemic era movie to hit $1billion (£733million).
Brit Tom has his new film with Mark Wahlberg, Uncharted, releasing this month, while California-born Zendaya can currently be seen on screen as the self-destructive protagonist Rue in Euphoria season 2.
In conversation with Entertainment Weekly about whether Rue should have more screen time in the new episodes, Zendaya said: ‘It was important for certain characters who we didn’t really get to see much of last season having more time to get to know them and explore their characters.’
She added: ‘But it’s kind of also Rue as an unreliable narrator, in the sense that she’s just trying to skate by without people noticing that she’s doing what she’s doing, and trying not to get caught.’
