Rachel Zegler

Rachel Zegler, born to an American father and Colombian mother in New Jersey, developed a deep passion for song and dance from an early age, actively participating in musical theater. At the Bergen School of Performing Arts, she notably portrayed Disney heroines such as Ariel in The Little Mermaid and Belle in Beauty and the Beast. Her talent earned her four nominations at the Metro Awards, recognizing outstanding high school performances in her region. In 2015, eager to showcase her skills, she launched her own YouTube channel, featuring covers of popular hits like Sia's "Chandelier" alongside her original compositions.
In 2018, during her senior year of high school, Rachel auditioned for a new adaptation of West Side Story by submitting a video of her performance of "I Feel Pretty" in Spanish. Following an extensive casting process, she was chosen by Steven Spielberg to portray the lead role of Maria in his adaptation of the classic musical.
Transforming from an emerging talent to a rising star, Rachel Zegler then joined the cast of Shazam! Fury of the Gods, the sequel to the DC Comics superhero film. She also starred in Hunger Games: The Ballad of the Snake and the Songbird, the franchise's fifth installment set decades before the events of the original trilogy, where she reprised the song "The Hanging Tree," a symbol of rebellion against the oppressive Capitol.
Continuing her ascent, Rachel was cast as Snow White in Disney's live-action adaptation of the 1937 animated classic. She will share the screen with Gal Gadot, who portrays her villainous stepmother in this highly anticipated production.
