Work with Zendaya
On December 14, 2012, Zendaya did an interview with Stacks, a Scholastic blog, and was asked: "Q: What is Davis Cleveland [who plays Flynn] like in real life? Zendaya: He’s hilarious. He is just like that character. Honestly, I’m 100% convinced that he is not 10 years old. There is, like, a little 30-year-old man stuck inside of him. (Laughs) I hang out with him like a teenager and any of my other friends. He is so smart. He is so beyond his years and it’s actually pretty astounding to me. I love being around him because he is such a cool kid!"
