Zoe Saldana: I don’t do scary

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana was “traumatized” by the first horror movie she watched.

The actress stars in the TV remake of classic 1968 film Rosemary’s Baby. In light of the scary series, the 35-year-old has reflected on the first creepy flick she watched.

“A Nightmare on Elm Street. That scene where Nancy sees Tina in a body bag, being dragged down the school hallway? For the love of god, that was traumatizing!” she shuddered to Us Weekly.

Zoe plays the title role in the show and finds herself living next to some spooky neighbours onscreen. She can slightly relate to her character in that way.

“In the Dominican Republic, my family lived next to this woman who sold eggs from her house. But she was more kooky than suspicious,” the star laughed.

Zoe and the cast filmed Rosemary’s Baby in French capital Paris. The brunette star thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

“It’s so elegant – the architecture, the history. My husband and I had an apartment a half block from Notre Dame and we would walk the streets,” she gushed.

“Outside of Paris, I could get by [with my French]. But Parisian French is like listening to New Yorkers crush the English language. It’s hideous!”

Rosemary’s Baby might leave many of Zoe’s fans hiding behind their hands. But she insists it was more fun than spooky on set.

“There are humorous moments, trust me. You get fake blood everywhere and it dries on you,” she laughed.
