Zoe Saldana renowned for her role as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy films states that she has taken a lot of inspiration from 2003 documentary Lost Boys of Sudan to portray her role as Gamora in the Guardians of the Galaxy films.
"When we were putting Gamora together in the first movie, I remember I had a conversation with James Gunn, and I was like, 'I don't know why, but the Lost Boys of Sudan come up in my mind in terms of children that are taken from their villages or from their people." Said Saldana.
"Like Gamora was from her planet - and forced into a life of violence and corruption and just abuse. And what that may do to someone's heart, someone's mind.' And then I was given permission to go as deep as I can, so I did!" The actress added.
Saldana also said that she wants to explore more of Gamora's past in the Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
"And what came of it was this warrior that is surviving, that will do whatever she can to get away from that -- even if she has to die. But she's also on this road to redemption." Added Saldana.
"There's a great deal of baggage that she's carrying in this movie that prevents her from being as light and as funny and open as the rest of the Guardians. And I hope that [when] we go into a Vol. 3 we'll explore that more." Saldana explained further.
