Saldaña: First they told me that it was like about this robot, this female robot. I thought it was like Alita: Battle Angel. But it’s set like in the jungle. And I was like, ‘well, that doesn’t really make any sense. Like a warrior princess was a robot, like a sentient, what is that?’ But Mali Finn, who was the casting director at that time, who was later then, Margery Simkin took the part of casting it, they would sometimes just come in and call me. And I was still living in New York at the time, and they would put me on tape. And sometimes it was like ‘Bring some tight stuff, I want you to climb, and do some cartwheels.’ And I’m like ‘okay.’ So I would come in, it’s like “We’ll, we’ll just play. Let’s move some furniture.’ I feel like I was able to book the part because of [my dance background]. And then one time, they called me in and I put myself on tape again for them, and they were like ‘just make all these sounds.’ *Tongue rolls* And I’m like ‘well, okay.’ And I’m thinking like James Cameron, a robot warrior princess that’s in the jungle, and I’m doing, R, like *tongue rolls* rolling my Rs, I don’t know what this is, but I dig it. They flew me from New York to Los Angeles and drove me to Lightstorm. I was like ‘oh my god, I’m going to go meet my idol, James Cameron. And they lock me in an office, which was a bit, a bit scary. And they gave me the script. And the script was like this thick *gestures about 2 inches with fingers*. They gave me three hours to read it, I took six. Because it was just, all the direction describing the whole world of Pandora was just really bizarre to me. And English is not my first language, so that was a little hard. And then Jim walks in, and he was so nice. And he said, ‘are you ready to meet yourself?’ And I was like ‘what?’ And at that moment, my soul like left my body. And then he walks me to his office, I see this big wheel of a ship, I had not idea it was the Titanic wheel. I see the arm of the Terminator. I just, I was like, oh my god, I’m having an out-of-body experience. And his office was beautiful and big and just like all these, like, you know things that he had kept from all his films. And on the coffee table was a sculpture of my character, Neytiri. As I’m observing the sculpture, he’s sitting across from me like observing me. And I’m thinking like ‘that’s not weird, that’s not weird, don’t act weird.’
