Star Trek Into Darkness Stars Are Geeks!

Zoe Saldana

Role: Nyota Uhura

She’s Geeky Because: She starred as Neytiri in Avatar, and its’ sequel, set for 2015. She also played a badass in Columbiana, and was just cast in the upcoming guaranteed geekfest Guardians of the Galaxy. When asked about the projects she has chosen, Saldana cited a lifetime love of all things nerdy: “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!” And we love you for it! Geek-O-Meter rating: 8.
