Zoe Saldana – Calls New Series A ‘Dream’
But even after receiving the pilot script, Zoe Saldana hesitated. She recalled how Sheridan sent it to her amid the pandemic. And Zoe admitted, “The thought of me committing to a multi-seasonal show was just daunting.” However, despite worrying about whether she could succeed, the combination of Nicole Kidman and Taylor Sheridan tempted her.
And Saldana recalled considering the fact that both Sheridan and Kidman had made commitments. “It was Taylor Sheridan. Nicole Kidman was already attached to produce, and she was going to play a part in it as well. So obviously, that was a dream for me,” Zoe confessed.
However, when Saldana agreed, she shared that her husband Marco Perego-Saldana actually helped give her the courage to take on the role. And since making the commitment, Zoe has felt thrilled. As she and Kidman received different scripts, they felt excited to become “a part of something this great,” she added. Look for Nicole and Zoe to star in the new series on Paramount+, which should announce the release date soon.
