Zoe Saldaña Reflects On Tough Pirates Of The Caribbean Filming Experience


Zoe Saldaña recalls not having a great time during her Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl experience. The 2003 film was the first of the largely successful Disney franchise, which produced five movies in total from 2003 to 2017. Pirates of the Caribbean stars Johnny Depp as the iconic character of Captain Jack Sparrow and tells the story of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), who joins forces with Sparrow to rescue his love Elizabeth Swann (Kiera Knightley), from the cursed crew of the Black Pearl ship.

In Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Saldaña plays Anamaria, a pirate who partners with Bloom’s Will Turner to confront Sparrow about stealing her ship. Jack ends up promising the boat back to dissuade her from harming him. The character of Anamaria was Saldaña’s first experience in a movie of such a large scale, and the overall experience left a lot to be desired for the young performer.

When Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was in production, Saldaña was 23 years old. In a recent conversation with EW, the actor talked about her less-than-perfect experience on that set when she was a young actor starting in the business. Reflecting on why she felt overwhelmed, Saldaña shared that that experience made her decide not to return to subsequent films of the franchise:

It was my first exposure to a major Hollywood mega movie, where there were just so many actors and so many producers and so many crew members. We were shooting in different locations, and the environments were not that agreeable, sometimes, to our shoot days. I was very young, and it was just a little too big for me, and the pace of it was a little too fast. I walked away not really having a good experience from it overall. I felt like I was lost in the trenches of it a great deal, and I just didn’t feel like that was okay.

Zoe Saldaña’s Post-POTC Career Has Soared To New Heights

The good news is that Saldaña did not allow that poor experience to sour her attitude toward franchises in general. Even though she felt overwhelmed by the colossal production back in 2003, she didn’t let that stop her from investing in her career and joining other huge titles. The performer went on to star in several massive franchises since her experience on Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Years later, the actor received a heartfelt apology from Pirates of the Caribbean filmmaker Jerry Bruckheimer, which settled the entire experience.

Saldaña became a big name in Hollywood, joining major franchises such as Avatar and MCU’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The actor has also been nominated for several awards, such as BET Awards and People’s Choice Awards. Despite her less-than-ideal experience in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Saldaña has done pretty well for herself in the business. Audiences can look forward to seeing her next in Avatar: The Way of Water, scheduled to premiere on December 16 in theaters.
