Her film career began a year later with “Center Stage” (2000), where she played a struggling ballet dancer, followed by a role in “Crossroads” (2002).

Saldana's breakthrough came in 2009 with the roles of Nyota Uhura in “Star Trek” and Neytiri in James Cameron's “Avatar” (2009). The latter film received widespread acclaim and is the highest-grossing film of all time.
