MISSING LINK

Receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this past spring, ZOE SALDANA recently reprised her role as the fan favorite 'Gamora,' in Avengers: Infinity Wars. Saldana stars with Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper in Marvel's box office powerhouse Guardians of The Galaxy franchise, playing the lethal alien assassin 'Gamora'. She starred in Live by Night, directed by Ben Affleck and has played 'Uhura' in the three films in the Star Trek franchise. Saldana is perhaps best known for her starring role as 'Neytiri in the record-breaking film Avatar, James Cameron's sci-fi thriller and is currently in production on the film's three highly anticipated sequels. Other film credits include Infinitely Polar Bear, Blood Ties, Out of the Furnace, The Words, Colombiana, Takers, Death at A Funeral and Center Stage.

She recently launched BESE (pronounced "Bee-Seh") a digital platform intended to reshape the cultural narrative by shining light on the untold stories that reflect today's America. This platform will provide a voice to Latinx youth through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram as well as youtube videos and podcasts. BESE fills a niche for young Latinx audiences craving positive modern portrayals. Saldana is spending time behind the camera with her film production company Cinestar. Founded with her two sisters, Cinestar produced the NBC Miniseries Rosemary's Baby as well as The AOL Digital series My Hero.

Additionally, Saldana teamed up with the millennial mom-geared network Awestruck to create digital content for AwesomenessTV. Partnering with Awestruck on both unscripted and scripted content, Cinestar will executive-produce two series and create a YouTube channel for the Awestruck platform. The lifestyle network is scheduled to debut later this year on YouTube, Facebook video and Verizon's upcoming Go90 video service.

When not in production, Saldana engages in meaningful philanthropic work involving children's development, well-being and confidence building. Saldana has been very vocal in her involvement with Brave Beginnings. The organization focuses on bringing essential life-saving equipment and services to seriously ill children and their families. Brave Beginnings specifically works to ensure ventilators and life-saving neonatal equipment are always available to newborns in critical need. Annually, Brave Beginnings provides grants for essential neonatal intensive care equipment such as critical airway carts, infant resuscitators, incubators, omnibeds and much more. Saldana is also the Global Ambassador for Shot@Life. Shot@Life aims to ensure that children around the world have access to life-saving vaccines.

Through education, advocacy and fundraising, they strive to decrease vaccine-preventable childhood deaths and give every child a shot at a healthy life no matter where they live. It is a campaign of the United Nations Foundation, which builds public-private partnerships to address the world's most pressing problems, and broadens support for the United Nations through advocacy and public outreach.
