American actress Zoe Saldana is of Puerto Rican and Dominican origin. She has appeared in a number of well-known films, including Crossroads, Star Trek, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and Avatar, where she plays Neytiri, one of the film’s main characters.

Another outstanding performer who was a member of the Avatar cast is actor Wes Studi. He is descended from Amerindians, and this is not just a trivial fact. In fact, he has committed himself to acting in parts that emphasise this legacy. Among other movies, he has worked on The Last of the Mohicans, Geronimo: An American Legend, and The New World. He plays the part of a tribal chief in the movie Avatar, standing up for the Na’vi people’s principles and resistance.
4. Sam Worthington — Jake Sully
Before he became well-known in Hollywood due to his role in Avatar, Sam Worthington was a comparatively unknown actor. He began his career with bit parts, just like many other actors. He was almost given the role of James Bond in Casino Royale and its follow-ups, though. Then, in 2010, he appeared in Clash of the Titans as Perseus, which is still his second most well-known performance. Additionally, he was in Fractured, The Shack, and Everest.
5. Michelle Rodríguez — Trudy Chacon
Along with her part in James Cameron’s Avatar, Michelle Rodriguez has appeared in a number of well-known movies, including The Fast and the Furious and the Resident Evil series.

In addition to numerous more films and television shows, he also appeared in Manhunter, Law & Order, and Public Enemies.

Cameron then placed his hand on my shoulder shortly after that, I believe in 2010, and said, “You’re coming back, you know that.
10. Giovanni Ribisi — Parker Selfridge
