Ga Ga: Zoe Saldana Makes a Fashionable Splash in Paris with Star Trek Costars

startrek-paris-zoesaldana-chrispine-zacharyquinto-apphoto.jpg The stars of the highly anticipated sci-fi prequel Star Trek stepped out for a group photo call in Paris, France Tuesday--but no one shined more than New York-bred beauty Zoe Saldana. One of our fave Ga Ga Girls (who's playing Lt. Uhura) hit the red carpet with director and producer J.J. Abrams and hunky costars Eric Bana, Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine. Of her Trekkie following, she recently told Esquire, "I've already had a [fan] come up to the door of my house. And I had a driver for another movie who brought all of his Star Trek memorabilia with him. He opened the trunk and there was this shrine. He had stacks of pictures he wanted me to sign. He ended up being the nicest guy, but it definitely freaked me out at first."

Star Trek‘s Zoe Saldana Never Watched the Original Series But Says She’s a Trekkie Now

Star Trek beauty Zoe Saldana may be the lone female on J.J. Abram's Enterprise, but she admits to not having watched the original series. Sorry Trekkies! "I never saw that," Saldana, who plays Uhura, said in a recent interview with BlackFilm.com. "I was not a fan until now and I have so much admiration for what they did, and how much the series continues to grow after 45 years and I had the honor of meeting Nichelle Nichols." Of her meeting with Nichols, Saldana reveals that Nichols told her she named Uhura herself. "I was able to sit down with her and she told me the whole story of how Uhura came to be and where they were going with her character," Saldana said. "But it all fell into place the moment she walked into the door and auditioned for the part." As for the Uhura's famous costume, Saldana said, "The moment everything came together from the hair, the costume, being on the set, and then you start to feel, 'Okay, this is real. This is amazing and fun'."

For all you Trekkies out there, Entertainment Weekly dedicates an entire cover story to filmmaker J.J. Abrams' super-secret Star Trek film.

Kirk, Heroes star Zachary Quinto as Spock, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Harold & Kumar's John Cho as Sulu, Anton Yelchin as Chekov, Karl Urban as McCoy, and one of Blindie's favorite actresses Zoe Saldana as Uhura. Of her role, Saldana said, "It’s great to see an exotic face in sci-fi. Little girls who look like me, or who are Arab, Filipina, whatever, are going to go, ‘Oh, my God, we can be in space, too!’"
