Saldana: Going Green

1 min read

Actress Zoe Saldana can add another color of the rainbow to her resume of on-screen characters.

Having played a blue character in Avatar, Saldana is set to portray the green-skinned alien Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy.

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora, a green-skinned humanoid assassin, is the last member of a species wiped out by the Badoon race.

“Well, the rainbow has a lot of colors,” said Saldana. “I dig it. I like being in space. I get to play less girlfriends, more female parts, more women. So I find it meaty.

“It’s a testament to how creative the people that conceive supernatural and science-fiction kind of stories,” said Saldana. “They’re able to build something out of nothing by just imagining it. I have a huge fascination with that. Filmmakers like J.J., like (Guardians director) James (Gunn), like James Cameron. … You need to be really, really special to do that. So I like being with special people.”

Guardians of the Galaxy, currently filming, is due out next summer.
