Zoe Saldaña won’t be bereaved to lose one aspect of her Marvel character Gamora, if the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise ends in its third instalment out 2023.
“I can never say no to anything, but that green makeup? I wouldn’t be upset if it didn’t happen again,” she said.
“I miss Gamora but I don’t miss 3.30 am calls and five-hour makeup sessions and trips to the dermatologist afterwards.”
That said, Saldaña explained that the connection fans have with her character makes the hours in makeup worth it.
“Every time that you know that eight-year-old or that dad and mum or those generational fans that remind me that what I did was special to them, it makes me not be cynical about Marvel. It makes me understand that younger audiences should stop being overlooked,” she said.
“They have feelings too and if something impacts them, just because we consider it stupid or immature or cheeky, doesn’t mean it’s not special.”
The Guardians cast will next appear in The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney+ 25 November.
