Zendaya is the show's main attraction, and rumours say that she is currently demanding a hefty fee for Season 3. 

Zen plays the role of Rue in Euphoria for the uninitiated. The TV show focuses on touchy issues including child abuse, drug misuse, toxic relationships, and mental illness, among other topics that are pertinent to today's teens.

House Of The Dragon later outperformed that achievement. The third season is eagerly awaited by fans, and Zendaya is making the most of it.

The most recent "What I'm Hearing..." newsletter from Puck's Matthew Belloni claims that Zendaya has renegotiated her contract and is now charging a staggering $1 million (INR 6.5 crores) for just one episode of Euphoria Season 3.

Actors like John Krasinski ($2 million for Jack Ryan) and Kevin Costner ($1.2 million for Yellowstone), among other exceptional actors from Hollywood, have previously joined that elite $1 million club.

Zendaya had previously created history when, at the age of 24, she became the youngest actor to win the Best Lead Actress in a Drama Emmy Award. She once again made history in 2022 when she became the first and only Black woman to take home two Emmys for outstanding lead actress in a drama.
