“She was amazing. It was a very surreal experience. Spiritual and intense,” says Saldana of her filming experience. “I honestly have no regrets and I honestly cannot wait until the film is done and ready to be shared with the world.”
As we reported, red hot British actor David Oyelowo, who also appears in the movie, says Zoe Saldana’s performance is going to impress a lot of people.
“I think a lot of people are going to be surprised of the sheer power of her. She went to work. She is a huge admirer of Nina Simone and that crept into what she did,” he shared with E! last week. “She wanted to tell the truth and every day we were on that set, that’s what I saw. She did do her own singing. It was fantastic, surprisingly… I was pretty blown away”.
And speaking of Nina’s music, which ones are favorites of Zoe … and why?
“I think “Four Women” and one of my favorites of all time, “Don’t Smoke In Bed.” I like the dark ones,” Saldana said of her favorite Nina Simone songs.
