In a recent interview with Empire magazine, Saldana revealed why she made the decision to switch career paths: “Acting was something I was curious about because when I was dancing I felt something was missing. I realised it was my voice – I loved using my voice – so I started acting.
Zoe hit the big time in 2009 with major roles in ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Avatar’. She had been working steadily since 2000 and she admits it took her a while to realise she had made it.
The 33-year-old said: “Months went by after the Oscars and while prepping for ‘Columbiana’ it kind of sunk in. It started with star trek and culminated in Avatar and the fact that both those films were so well received, globally. I just felt very overwhelmed.”
We can just imagine dinky Saldana as a ballerina. Too cute!
