Zoe Yadira Zaldaña Nazario or Zoe Saldana, is the new Uhura in the latest installment of Star Trek due to open on May 8th 2009. She is both beautiful and sexy which reduced the need for special effects and makeup in the movie. I can’t say I remembered Zoe or Zoë from any of her previous movies such as Vantage Point and After Sex because I had not seen them. Now they are on my list.
I snitched the follow from Wikipedia about Zoe :
Zoe Saldana was born in New Jersey on June 19th 1978 to Dominican Republic parents. She is of Lebanese, Indian, Irish, and Jamaican descent. She was raised in Queens, New York, and her first languages are English and Spanish. When Zoe was nine, her father died in a car accident, and her mother moved with Zoe and Zoe’s sisters to the Dominican Republic. There, Zoe enlisted in a ballet class at one of the most prestigious dancing schools in the country, gaining experience as a dancer, which benefited her later for her role in Center Stage. She returned to the United States after her sophomore year in high school and enrolled in the Faces Theater Program, an acting course.
