With her upcoming roles in JJ Abrams Star Trek and James Cameron’s Avatar , Zoe Saldana is destined to become sci-fi royalty, but in a new interview with ComingSoon the new Uhura shows that she is still well grounded as she talks about turning heads in her mini, the new Kirk and Spock and if she is going to say that signature line
excerpts from Coming Soon’s interview
Coming Soon: Can you tease if you wear the mini-skirt? Did you get your legs in shape for this role?
Saldana: All I’m going to say is that for some reason every man on set noticed when I was working. It was like “God, I don’t know – Was it my line? My deliverance? Oh. Okay.” That’s all I’m going to say.
Coming Soon: Any one else in the new cast that kind of blew you away?
Saldana: Everybody – from Eric Bana to primarily Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, they were amazing. I really hope that the fans embrace their interpretation of Kirk and Spock. It was so genuine and it came from the heart, with the most respect.
Coming Soon: Okay, you’ve got to give up one little thing: did you get to say “Hailing frequencies open?”
Saldana: [long pause, then grinning widely] F*ck, yeah!
