It was really important to be well aware of the past before the ‘Adam Project’ and the Actor from ‘Avatar’, who lost his father in 1987 during a car accident. ‘I can understand what it feels like to lose your father at a young age, but It is much more worse for one’s mother who loses her husband, that pain and grief is really hard to explain” added Saldana, who herself is a mother to three children and a wife to Marco Perego Italian actor.

Saldana realized after working on this series that how one feels when they loses their partner, but still these conversations makes me feel uneasy.

“Even if we have talked through this in past several times but still it hurts when you go through such a tragic incident in your life, it leaves you shattered and alone.” She further added “After filming this series it helped me to recover from my past incident and also to look at my life in a different perspective”.
