Check out Zayn Malik’s new music video where our lovely Nicola has appeared! Don’t forget to check some stills in our gallery too!
Read the interview of Nicola for TeenVogue:
When Zayn began teasing his music video for “iT’s YoU,” the second single for his upcoming album, Mind of Mine, he included a gorgeous, slow-mo clip of a woman walking towards a vintage car. Though her back was turned to the camera, she was blond and statuesque, so people immediately started wondering…Was that Gigi Hadid? Would Zayn cast his girlfriend in two music videos back to back? She absolutely slayed in the “Pillowtalk” music video, which had dropped a month before so hey, maybe, right?
It turns out that it was 21-year-old Nicola Peltz, who has been in projects like Transformers: Age of Extinction and Bates Motel. But a music video is entirely different from movies or TV, and Nicola is the first to point that out. “It’s so crazy because films can take six months, and come out a year later…and this was filmed a week and a half ago,” she told Teen Vogue the morning after the music video dropped. (Nicola has been in another music video before — Miley Cyrus’ “7 Things,” when she was 13, but she says, “I was like a different human” back then.)
