How does the entertaiment industy know when a young actor/actress is about to make the next step to the big leagues of Hollywood? In many cases such as entertainer Zendaya, it is when the representatives of CAA, Creative Artists Agency, come knocking at your door and sign you as client and that is what has happened with Zendaya. The multitalented star of "Shake It Up", and the soon to be released television movie "Zapped" is now a client of one of the top entertainment agencies in Hollywood and entertainment insiders predict that she will soon be part of a major film in the near future.
Zendaya not only signed with CAA but she is the current cover model of NKD magazine where she talks about how her goals dffer from the average teenager. As she noted in her interviews, some teenagers go to the prom and some go to compete on "Dancing With the Stars" and as anyone who has ever listened to Zendaya can discern, this ambitious entertainer chose to compete on "Dancing With the Stars" where she placed second overall.
For many teenage actors they could not imagine making the choice that Zendaya made but this is likely why CAA chose to sign her to a representation contract. Zendaya is the rare teenage actress who at her young age knows what she wants. This determination and confidence was also shown in her debut album for which she made all the decisions. She found the artwork, the producers and even chose the songs.
CAA signed Zendaya to help move her to a larger entertainment platform and what they are getting is a young entertainer mature beyond her years with the ambition to be a superstar.
