Early life[edit] Saldana was born in Passaic, New Jersey.[5][6] Her father, Aridio Saldaña,[7] was Dominican, while her mother, Asalia Nazario, is Puerto Rican.[8] Saldana also has Lebanese and Haitian roots.[9][10] With regard to her racial identity, Saldana stated, "There's no one way to be black. I'm black the way I know how to be."[11] She spent the majority of her early childhood growing up in Jackson Heights, New York. She was raised bilingual, speaking English and Spanish. She has two sisters, named Cisely and Mariel.[3] Their father died in a car crash when Zoe was 9 years old, and their mother subsequently moved with the children to the Dominican Republic.[3] Saldana discovered her love of dance in the Dominican Republic
Dominican Republic
and enrolled in the ECOS Espacio de Danza Academy; she studied various forms of dance,[5][3][12][13] but describes ballet as her first passion.[3][14] She told Vanity Fair that she quit ballet because she did not "have the feet" and had too much pride and ambition to just be in the corps de ballet.[14] The family returned to New York after her sophomore year in high school.[14] In 1995, she began performing with the Faces theater group in Brooklyn,[15] which put on plays geared toward providing positive messages for teens via themes dealing with issues such as substance abuse and adolescent sexuality. Concurrently, she performed with the New York Youth Theater; her appearance in their production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
led a talent agency to recruit her. Her previous dance training, and her acting experience, helped her land her first film role, playing talented and headstrong ballet student Eva Rodriguez in Center Stage (2000).[5][12] Career[edit] Beginnings[edit]

Saldana at Hollywood Life Magazine's Annual Breakthrough Awards in 2007

Saldana was still a member of Faces when she gained exposure in an episode of Law & Order (titled "Merger") which first aired in 1999.[16] Saldana's first film role was in Center Stage (2000), directed by Nicholas Hytner, about a group of young dancers from various backgrounds who enroll at the fictitious American Ballet Academy in New York City. She then appeared in the Britney Spears vehicle Crossroads (2002). The film was met with negative reviews from critics, but became somewhat of a box office success.[17][18] The same year Saldana starred in the comedy-drama Drumline (2002), alongside Nick Cannon, which was met with generally favorable reviews. In Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), she played Anamaria, a female pirate who signs up to join Will Turner and Mr. Gibbs for a chance to confront Jack Sparrow for stealing her ship. As to why she never appeared in any further films in the franchise, Saldana revealed that she almost quit acting following "disrespectful treatment" on set of the film.[19] She then appeared in The Terminal as Dolores Torres, an immigration officer and Star Trek fan, a role that would later help Saldana when she came to appear in J. J. Abrams' 2009 film Star Trek.[20] In 2004 she also made appearances in Haven and Temptation, both of which had little to no box office success. In 2005, Saldana appeared in Constellation, Guess Who with Ashton Kutcher, and Dirty Deeds. She then starred in the romantic comedy-dramas Premium in 2006 and After Sex in 2007.[21] The same year Saldana starred in Blackout, a television film set in New York City during the Northeast Blackout of 2003. The film premiered at the 2007 Zurich Film Festival[22] and debuted on BET in 2008.[23] Saldana also had a small role as Angie Jones in the 2008 film Vantage Point.[24] Breakthrough[edit]
