Starting in 1999 and still making her way into various films all the way until the year 2018, Zoe Saldana‘s career never seems to end. She manages to be featured in some top grossing productions while balancing a fantastic reputation for her creativity. With the Avengers coming out this weekend we thought it would be best to focus on just how much Zoe Saldana is actually worth.
Zoe Saldana’s Net Worth: $20 Million
In 1999 she began in Law & Order, and then later was cast in Center Stage, Star Trek, and even one of the highest box office films, Avatar. She is recognized for being versatile in her efforts, playing in science fiction, dramas, and even some action movies such as Colombiana. Zoe Saldana has hit the screen with multiple critical figures within the industry including Nick Cannon, in his Drumline, alongside Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean, and even with Ashton Kutcher. All of these varieties of films which are still being aired creates her net worth of being around $20 Million.
Who would Zoe Saldana be if she wasn’t born on June 19th of 1978? She is the daughter of Aridio Saldana and Asalia Nazario. Her father, Dominican, and mother Puerto Rican allowed her to not only enter her Hispanic culture but also Lebanese and Haitian roots. Saldana was raised in New York, more specifically, Jackson Heights, where she was able to learn not only English but also Spanish.
After the death of her father, her mother decided it best to move to the Dominican Republic where she understood the foundations of dance and decided that it was her passion. Once she had learned a few dance lessons from ECOS Espacio de Danca Academy outside of the country, she returned back to New York upon the entry of Sophomore year where her passion allowed her to begin performances at the Faces theatre.
Some of her earlier work was revolved around giving a voice to teens who dealt with substance abuse and adolescent sexuality. The love for these social issues is what allowed her to begin her first masterpiece during the year 2000, Center Stage, a film about the reality of teens within dance studios and how they face having to find their own individuality while still creating performances in New York.
Currently, Saldana has starred in over forty different films and five various TV shows. With all of her hard work, she has been presented with six awards from 2006 up until 2017.
