Zoe Saldana

Roots: Puerto Rican-Dominican

Resume: Miramax’s teen comedy “Get Over It”

Next up: Starring opposite Britney Spears in helmer Tamra Davis’ untitled coming-of-age story; also he will soon be seen alongside rapper Nelly in the performer-turned-thesp’s frosh feature, “Snipes,” for Ruff Nation Films.

Big break: After eight years of laboring as a professional dancer — living in both the states and the Dominican Republic — Saldana landed her inaugural feature gig in last year’s dance pic “Center Stage.”

Influences: Whoopi Goldberg, Vanessa Redgrave, Raul Julia

Favorite thing about acting:

“It allows me to take a hiatus from myself; I no longer have to be me 365 days of the year.”

On working with Spears: “It’s a blast. The set exudes such a feminine vibe. Women definitely rule this movie.”
