Zoe Saldana says starring in sci-fi films made her color-blind and gender-blind

Zoe Saldana, in a recent interview with The Daily Telegraph, said that she was a “sci-fi buff” and that she enjoyed being in science fiction movies because “you get to play characters who defy gravity.”

Saldana, who has starred in such sci-fi blockbusters as Avatar, Star Trek, and Guardians of the Galaxy, said of the reason she is drawn to the genre of sci-fi, “It makes me feel superhuman because, obviously, it’s been brought to my attention continuously since I was born that I’m not a conventional person because of the color of my skin or my gender or my cultural background.”

“I think science fiction has given me the ability as an artist to be color blind, and gender-blind… and to imagine and reinvent myself and be the chameleon actors are supposed to be,” she added.

She went on to talk about how she had grown up with a love of science fiction, particularly with the strong heroine characters that she was able to see on the screen. “I love Aliens, I love The Terminator – Sarah Connor and Ellen Ripley were the only action heroines I could identify with growing up,” she said.
