Zoe Saldaña (full name Zoe Yadira Saldaña Nazario, born June 19, 1978) is an American actress best known for playing the pirate, Anamaria, in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. She’s in two of the biggest space epics currently hurtling toward theaters: Avatar (December), a motion-capture thriller about a band of planetary colonizers from director James Cameron, and this month’s Star Trek, playing a young Uhura. She got her first screen experience on an episode of Law & Order, which aired October 13, 1999. Zoe then made 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). Saldana was also the lead in the video for Juan Luis Guerra’s song “La llave de mi corazon.” If there was a stock market on rising talent and beauty, we here at SwipeLife would heavily invest on Ms. Saldaña.
