She also happens to be a skilled assassin.
On ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ Zoe Saldana revealed, “I wish I knew a little bit more about it. I just signed on, and I’ve been talking and meeting with the director. And I’ll be back here [London, UK] in 3 weeks because we’ll be shooting here for about 4 months…. I know that it’s going to be a lot of work, and it’s going to be fun.” Saldana also confirmed that she’ll become Gamora through the magic of make-up, as opposed to CGI, or performance capture.
