(ANI): Avatar actress Zoe Saldana, who"s riding high on
the success of her latest film, proudly calls herself a science
fiction geek. The 31-year-old star, who shot to fame in J.J.
Abram's Star Trek earlier this year (09), says she is
thrilled she is best known for her roles in sci-fi epics.
While talking to People magazine, Saldana says she loves meeting
up with fans of her fantasy movies - comparing it to 'preaching to
my choir'. “For me, it's been like preaching to my choir, because I
was considered what you would think of as a geek," the Daily
Express quoted her as saying.
"I loved stories that helped me escape, and those happened to be
the stories that fall into the category of geekiness. So,
therefore, I am a proud geek!" she added.
