Babe # 222 – Zoe Saldana

Beautiful actress Zoe Saldana was born in New Jersey and her full birth name is:  Zoe Yadira Zaldaña Nazario.  She spent about 7 years also growing up in the Dominican Republic where she got involved in dance and ballet.  After returing to the U.S. she began to act.  Zoe is of course playing Uhura in the new “Star Trek” movie – just out now.  The ironic thing is she also played a Trekkie in the movie, “The Terminal.”  Other projects for her include:  “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”, “Vantage Point” and the upcoming Sci-Fi movie, “Avatar.”  I hope this lovely lady gets many more interesting genre roles in the future – especially a couple more Trek films!
