Zoe Yadira Zaldaña Nazario

Extensive dance training from childhood thru her teen years led Zoe Yadira Zaldaña Nazario to her first movie role--as a talented but headstrong teen-age dancer in Center Stage.
Since then, she's done little dancing, but a lot of acting in a variety of films in roles ranging from cameos and minor parts to co-starring roles, almost (but not quite) achieving stardom.
With high-profile roles in several franchises, beginning with the reboot Star Trek, plus Avatar sequels and the Guardians of the Galaxy (which links into the Marvel movie Universe), it looks like Zoe's career is going at (dare I say it?) warp speed...
Trivia: Her character in the movie The Terminal is a Trekkie!
