Zoe Saldana is slowly becoming one of the most popular “geek go to girls” in Hollywood. She is also one of the most talented actresses with the ability to really submerge herself into her characters. She was simply brilliant in “Avatar” and we are really looking forward to seeing her in the remainder of the sequels set to be released. Saldana is also Spock’s girlfriend in “Star Trek” and she portrays “Gamora” in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy”.
