Zoe Saldana Explains Uhura's Character Evolution In the New Star Trek: Into Darkness

Zoe Saldana is our spirit animal. She is super sweet, has an incredible sense of style, and can hold her own with the boys. It wasn't a surprise when she explained how pasionate she was about her Star Trek character Uhura's evolution from the first film to this recent installment as an educated warrior of sorts, the writers giving her more functions as just the talented linguist.

Zoe says that she wanted Uhura's new role to portray a woman who has become more comfortable in her role on the bridge and who can step up and save the day when duty calls.

Way to go, Zoe, we love that your passion for film clearly transcends the cameras and green screens onto a whole new plane where you are able to empathize with your character. Bravo!
