“So when I see what transpired on screen, I’m very proud of [it]. Though how difficult it was to get there, I don’t ever want to go back.” Zoe continued.
Saldaña, who’s now starring in the TV series Special Ops: Lioness alongside Nicole Kidman, also touched upon not being asked back for any of the other Pirates installments, saying she’s “happy” not to have returned.

She said, “I was only asked to be part of one and then, you know, and then that was it. Maybe they chose to go in a different direction. If [having her character return] was certainly the goal in the beginning, it didn’t transpire by the end of the production and I’m happy it didn’t,”.
“There was just a lot of politics that you would have had to navigate, and I just felt really lost and very small in that big machine. But I’m happy for all the actors that benefited from this because they certainly did and they went off to have amazing careers.” The stars added.
“And I followed their careers and felt really inspired, but for me, it was definitely an experience not worth repeating.” Zoe Saldana continued.
