She’ll return to cinemas later this month as the green-bodied alien Gamora in the Guardians Of The Galaxy sequel.
And actress Zoe Saldana has revealed why she’s drawn to starring in science-fiction roles in Hollywood.
Besides being ‘a sci-fi buff’, the 38-year-old told The Daily Telegraph she likes that ‘you get to play characters who defy gravity’ in the boundary-pushing films.
Zoe added: ‘I think science fiction has given me the ability as an artist to be colourblind, and gender-blind.’
‘…and to imagine and reinvent myself and be the chameleon actors are supposed to be,’ she revealed.
