I swear, for a movie that’s worshiped by geeks around the globe, the “Star Trek” movie premiere sure does have a lot of hot women! Major props to the marketing department for pumping the cast with hotties! Ow!
We’ve posted up 30-year old Zoe Saldana a few times over the years, but for those of you who don’t know much about her, here’s some info:
Saldana was still a member of the program when she got her first screen experience on an episode of Law & Order, which aired October 13, 1999. She left school after her major film debut in Center Stage (2000), which subsequently led to appearances in the Britney Spears vehicle Crossroads (2002) and the drama Drumline (2002). She played the tough pirate wench Anamaria in the 2003 film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and has appeared in a number of television shows and movies, including The Terminal (2004) and Guess Who (2005). Saldana was also the lead in the video for Juan Luis Guerra’s song “La llave de mi corazón”, and has recently been cast as Uhura in the upcoming Star Trek movie. [Source]
Zoe Saldana was born in New Jersey to immigrants from the Dominican Republic. Her first languages are Spanish and English. She was raised in Queens, New York. When Saldana was nine, her father died in a car accident, and Saldana’s mother moved her and her sisters back to the Dominican Republic. While there, Saldana enlisted in a ballet class and gained experience as a dancer, enlisting in one of the most prestigious dancing schools of that country, which benefited her during her later role in Center Stage. She returned to the USA after her sophomore year in high school and enrolled in the Faces Theater Program, an acting course. She also worked in Burger King as a cashier in the mid 90s. She is currently dating actor Keith Britton. Wiki
