Actress Zoe Saldana impressed her fans by bringing a character half her age to life in the series ‘Recomeço’. Now 44 years old and a mother of three, Saldana is mainly known for her works as the warriors Gamora, in the Marvel films, and Neytiri, in ‘Avatar’ (2009). The new series starring her is inspired by the autobiography of writer Tembi Locke.
Although set throughout Locke’s life, the series sees Saldana playing the main character in her late teens and early adulthood, fresh out of college.

The eight episodes of the production are mainly centered on the main character’s relationship with the Italian cook with whom she ends up falling in love after going to study in Florence. Salana’s love interest is played by actor Eugenio Mastrandrea.

Still in 2022, Saldana will be in theaters as one of the protagonists of ‘Avatar: The Path of Water’, continuation of the 2009 blockbuster. In mid-2023 she will return to theaters in the role of Gamora in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’.
