in Hollywood by forging her own path and making her presence felt
in every role. She stood out in 'Center Stage', dazzled Nick Cannon in
'Drumline' and even made Ashton Kutcher look smart by being his fiancee
in 'Guess Who?'Her most recent role is a testament to that staying power,
where she played Lt. Uhura in JJ Abrams' smash remake of 'Star Trek'.

evidenced with her work on Barack Obama's presidential campaign and
other activist efforts. With another key role in James Cameron's
'Avatar' wrapped up, Zoe Saldana is poised for the heights of superstardom.
