[BlackTree TV - Miami, FL] Jamaal Finkley goes 1-on-1 with the new crowned female champ of action movies, Zoe Saldana, to talk about her action packed new movie 'Colombiana'.

In the action film Colombiana, Zoe Saldana plays Cataleya, a young woman who has grown up to be an assassin after witnessing the murder of her parents as a child. Turning herself into a professional killer and working for her uncle, she remains focused on her ultimate goal: to hunt down and get revenge on the people responsible for her parents' deaths.

ZOE SALDANA (Cataleya) is best known for her performance as Neytiri in James Cameron's sci-fi thriller Avatar, the highest-grossing film of all time. Avatar won the Golden Globe for Best Director and Best Picture and received a total of nine Academy Award® nominations, including Best Picture.

In 2009, Saldana starred as Nyota Uhura in J.J. Abrams' blockbuster action-sci-fi film Star Trek, which took in more than $385 million at the worldwide box office and went on to receive four Oscar® nominations. She also recently starred in the Screen Gems film Death at a Funeral, co starring James Marsden and Martin Lawrence, and in Warner Bros.' The Losers alongside Chris Evans, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Jason Patric.

Saldana first came to prominence with her memorable performance as Eva in Center Stage. Her many other film credits include Vantage Point, Guess Who, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, The Terminal, Dirty Deeds, Crossroads, and Drumline. Her television credits include appearances on NBC's "Law & Order."

In 2004, Saldana accepted the Young Hollywood One to Watch award, presented by Movieline Magazine, for her performance in The Terminal. She then went on to grace the cover of Elle in 2009 as one of the magazine's top Women in Hollywood, as well as the cover of Glamour as one of the magazine's Women of the Year. To finish off the year, Saldana was named as MaxMara's Face of the Future, Glamour UK's Film Actress of the Year for 2010, and also became the new face of Calvin Klein Underwear and Calvin Klein Envy.

Saldana was born and raised in New York. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
