The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which administers the popular star ceremonies, encourages people who are unable to attend and fans around the world to watch the event exclusively on www.walkoffame.com.

Zoe Saldana was raised in New York City and the Dominican Republic. Saldana is the epitome of a true star in Hollywood, and has built her reputation as a versatile and respected actress by choosing roles that she feels passionately about.

She will reprise her role as the fan-favorite ‘Gamora,’ in “Avengers: Infinity War,” which will open in U.S. theaters on April 27. Additionally, she can be seen in the independent drama “I Kill Giants” directed by Anders Walter based on the comic book of the same name. Saldana also recently lent her talents as the voice of Captain Celaeno in the animated Lionsgate film, “My Little Pony: The Movie.”   

In 2017, she was seen opposite Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper and Karen Gillan in Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” where she again starred as the franchise’s lethal alien assassin, ‘Gamora’. The movie was a blockbuster success, grossing over $380-million domestically.

In 2016, Saldana was seen in “Star Trek: Beyond,” the third installment to the 2009 blockbuster hit.  She reprised her role of ‘Lieutenant Uhura’ opposite Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. The J.J. Abrams’ action-packed film grossed $185-million at the box office. That year she also played the role of ‘Graciela’ in Ben Affleck’s “Live by Night.”

Saldana is best known in her starring role as ‘Neytiri’ in the record-breaking film, “Avatar,”James Cameron’s sci-fi thriller, co-starring Sigourney Weaver and Sam Worthington. “Avatar” quickly became the highest grossing film of all time, winning the 2010 Golden Globe for Best Director and Best Picture. “Avatar” went on to receive a total of nine 2010 Academy Awards nominations, including Best Picture. Saldana is currently in production on the film’s highly anticipated sequels “Avatar 2, 3 and 4.”  “Avatar 2” is slated for a 2020 release.

She made her feature film debut in “Center Stage” in 2000. Saldana’s other film credits include, among others, “Infinitely Polar Bear,” “Blood Ties,” “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” “Out of the Furnace,” “The Words,” “Colombiana,” “Takers,” “Book of Life” and “Death at a Funeral.”  Saldana has also garnered accolades for her motion picture performances as leading actress including the NALIP Latino Media Awards, Imagen Awards, ALMA Awards and Saturn Awards among others.”

Saldana recently launched BESE (pronounced “Bee-Seh”) a digital platform intended to reshape the cultural narrative by shining light on the untold stories that reflect today’s America. This platform will provide a voice to Latinx youth through social media. BESE fills a niche for young Latinx audiences craving positive portrayals of the modern American experience.

Furthermore, Saldana is spending time behind the camera with her film production company Cinestar. Founded with her two sisters Cisely and Mariel, Cinestar produced the NBC miniseries “Rosemary’s Baby” as well as the AOL Original series “My Hero.” She will next be seen in “The Honor List” for Cinestar in partnership with Popsugar, and Lionsgate's Studio L.

The lifestyle network is scheduled to debut later this year on YouTube, Facebook video and Verizon’s upcoming go90    video streaming app.

In 2011, Saldana directed the short film “Kaylien” in her ongoing effort to raise awareness about autism. The short film – which served as Saldana’s directorial debut – was a part of the Glamour Reel Moments series that brings Hollywood’s leading female talent to take a turn behind the camera, directing a short film inspired by real-life story submissions from Glamour readers. “Kaylien” starred Malin Akerman and Bradley Cooper.  

When not in production, Saldana engages in philanthropic work involving children’s development, well-being and confidence building.

Additionally, she also lends her support to The Step Up Network – an organization which works to propel young women from under-resourced communities to fulfill their potential by empowering them to become confident, college-bound and career-focused leaders.

Princess Cruises and the Original Cast of “The Love Boat”
to Receive Hollywood Walk of Fame Honorary Star Plaque
Ceremony Scheduled for May 10, 2018

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (May 1, 2018) – Just over 40 years ago (May 1977), a new television show premiered, set aboard a cruise ship, featuring stories of romance, hijinks and adventure on the high seas that involved characters portrayed by Hollywood’s biggest stars of the day. The opening theme song lyrics invited viewers to “come aboard, we’re expecting you…” Today, “The Love Boat” remains a beloved part of the fabric and culture of television and the ensemble cast along with ocean-going co-star Princess Cruiseswill be honored by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, superintendent of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, will honor Princess Cruises and the original cast of “The Love Boat;” Gavin MacLeod (Captain Stubing), Jill Whelan (Vicki), Ted Lange (Isaac), Bernie Kopell (Doc), Lauren Tewes (Julie) and Fred Grandy (Gopher) during a ceremony on Thursday, May 10, 2018 at 10 a.m. in front of the Dolby Theatre on the famed Hollywood Boulevard.

“What an unexpected thrill for our cast to be honored with Princess Cruises on Hollywood Boulevard,” said Gavin MacLeod, aka Captain Merrill Stubing and 30-year brand ambassador for Princess Cruises. “’The Love Boat’ offered us many opportunities to see the world, create lifelong friendships and of course introduce the joys of cruising. People still approach me and say that the show gave them something to dream about – falling in love, finding happiness all while sparking the desire to travel. Now more than 40 years later, cruising is a vacation option for everyone and the growth of the industry just proves that dreams really do come true,” added MacLeod.

It began in the mid-70s when television producer Douglas S. Cramer, who had created the popular television series “Love, American Style,” decided to transplant his popular comedy vignette series from its studio setting to the environs of a modern cruise ship. The resulting television show, “The Love Boat” has been widely credited with introducing millions of viewers to the concept of a contemporary cruise vacation and the dramatic growth of the industry, which continues to expand globally today.

“We’re proud to welcome the original cast of ‘The Love Boat’ and Princess Cruises as Friends of the Walk of Fame recognizing their contribution to the history of television and support for the preservation of the Walk of Fame,” said Leron Gubler, president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

After the 1977 pilot show, which was shot aboard the line's original Sun Princess in Mexico, Cramer teamed up with top television producer Aaron Spelling and “The Love Boat” went on to enjoy phenomenal success, continuing for 10 seasons until 1987 as one of the highest-rated, prime-time television shows in the country. Princess Cruises soon became a household name as the primary setting and co-star of the popular series, and continues to be known as the "Love Boat" cruise line today. Pacific Princess and Island Princess were the two original ships but as the show grew in popularity “The Love Boat” was filmed aboard many Princess ships at exotic destinations around the globe.

“The Hollywood Historic Trust is pleased to welcome our newest Friends of the Walk of Fame,” said Donelle Dadigan, co-chair of the Hollywood Historic Trust, the organization that works to maintain the world-famous walk. Ms. Dadigan is also chair of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for 2018.

Like no other show in television history, “The Love Boat” featured more than 1,000 celebrity guest stars including Tom Hanks, Florence Henderson, Charo, Debbie Reynolds, Milton Berle, Mickey Rooney, Ethel Merman and Ginger Rogers, to name a few. The original “Love Boat” series is currently in worldwide syndication, having been translated into more than 29 different languages, and is viewed by millions of fans in more than 93 countries. Fans can watch episodes on MeTV, Memorable Entertainment Television, America’s #1 all classic television network.
