Having already been part of the huge James Cameron film Avatar (and its succeeding sequels) and the Star Trek flicks, Zoe Saldana scored another creative hit with Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014. The sequel takes places three to four months after the events of the original, and Saldana was extremely happy to be reunited with her collaborators.
“Getting back to seeing everyone was the most exciting part of doing the sequel,” said Saldana. “I wasn’t looking forward to the five hours of green make-up. But it’s so funny, I never really did look forward to it but as soon as I was on set, I was happy and I would forget that I had been there since 2:30 in the morning. I always felt like I was playing with my friends, you know?”
