Zoë Saldana's training
« on: January 30, 2010, 04:27:59 pm »
What exactly did Zoë Saldana do in her months of training to play Neytiri? I've seen little behind-the-scenes snippets about Avatar, and I am intrigued with her training.

assuming you've seen the same behind-the-scenes videos i have, im sure it was mostly that. agility exercises, flexability, and just lerning how to move and turn her body into different positions. And also learning the language, which im extremely jealous of. Dr.Frommer was probably their teacher.

I thought in an interview Dr.Frommer said the actors didn't know what they were saying?

Just an FYI: this thread is probably going to get locked. There's an identical thread here:

Zoe Saldana Training

It's been around for a few weeks. You may want to continue your discussion there.
