Losing a parent is never an easy thing, no matter how young or old you are, but unfortunately there are plenty stars who lost a parent at a young age.
Zoe Saldana has been vocal about her Hispanic roots. Born in Passaic, New Jersey, the “Columbina” star moved to her mother’s home country of the Dominican Republic at the age of nine after her father tragically died in a car accident. She moved back to the U.S., this time across the bridge in Queens, NY as a sophomore in high school. Soon after she would fall in love with theater and follow her dreams to become an actress.
