Early Life: Zoë Yadira Saldaña Nazario was born on June 19th of 1978 in New Jersey. Her father was Dominican while her mother is Puerto Rican. Her full name is a reflection of both her Puerto Rican and Dominican ancestry. She was raised in Jackson Heights, New York City alongside her two sisters. Disaster struck when her father was killed in a car accident when Zoë Saldana was nine years old, and her mother relocated the entire family to the Dominican Republic not long afterward.
During her time in the Dominican Republic, Zoë Saldana became an accomplished dancer. Although she studied ballet and became interested in a career as a ballet dancer, she was forced to quit because she didn’t have the correct foot structure to excel. Saldana still describes ballet as her passion. After moving back to New York City, Zoë attended high school and joined a theater group called Faces. This group focused on spreading positive messages to teens in high school. While she was still a teen, Saldana appeared in a production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. During one performance of the play, she caught the eye of a talent scout and signed with an agency.
Career: Zoë Saldana’s first big role in front of a camera was in Law & Order in 1999. Due to her expertise as a ballet dancer, she then booked a lead role in the 2000 dance film Center Stage.

During the next few years, Saldana appeared in films such as Haven, Temptation, Constellation, Guess Who, Premium, Dirty Deeds, After Sex, Blackout, and Vantage Point.
In 2009, her earlier work in The Terminal was put to good use when she booked the role of Nyota Uhura in the reboot film Star Trek. She did considerable research into her character in order to convincingly play the role. Star Trek proved to be a staggering box office success with earnings of over $385 million. However, Saldana’s next film of 2009 would prove to be even more commercially successful. She played the xenos hunter Neytiri in Avatar, a film that grossed $2.7 billion worldwide.
