The news comes as no surprise, given that Ralph was excited to meet the Euphoria star for the first time at this year's Screen Actors Guild Awards. Zendaya was spotted walking over to the Emmy winner to introduce herself, which sparked an exciting discussion.

On Instagram, Ralph shared a snap of herself with the 26-year-old actress and wrote, "I am in awe of this young beautiful woman. @zendaya continue to let your light shine baby!"

While speaking with PureWow, Ralph also praised talented actors like the Euphoria star, who have been making serious moves and growing in the Hollywood industry. "Most of them are doing exactly what they should be doing, and they will get their shine," she said. "I know it. I’ve seen it happen all too often because they hang in there and they keep doing the good work." 

As for which shows she'd want to guest star in, Ralph mentioned quite a few gems that we're sure fans would be on board with. She said, "There are so many great shows on TV right now, it's hard to choose. But I love Severance. I love Succession. I love One Million Little Things."

With regards to her partnership with Microban 24, Ralph revealed that the brand has been her go-to product since it first launched. "It was an easy yes to this partnership because it’s a product I use almost every day to keep surfaces in my home protected from bacteria," she said.

Fingers crossed we'll see her guest star on one of these shows and, more importantly, share some screen time with Zendaya.
