Guardians Of The Galaxy's Zoe Saldana To Appear In Doctor Who?

Star of the new Guardians of the Galaxy film, Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek) has said that she would love to appear in Doctor Who. 

Saldana told Den of Geek that her 11 year old niece is a "die-hard Whovian":
"My niece knows every single actor from the beginnings of the show. She dresses like a Whovian every day, that blue colour. 
"It would be wonderful for me to be in Doctor Who. I'd be cool forever to her."
She revealed that former Doctor Who companion and Guardians of the Galaxy co-star Karen Gillan sent her niece a video message:
"What made her year is that Karen Gillan sent her a video of her going 'hi'. 
Saldana also spoke in the interview about playing 'strong female characters':
"It bothers me that I'm always told that I do strong female characters, when in reality, I look at my characters and I feel like they were all broken. They all came from a very devastating past. They were trying to achieve something, they had hope, and they wanted to get someplace, like everything other character that has a meaningful and relevant arc in the story." 
"It's because we don't really know women. We don't write women accurately. We don't see women the way that we should see women as a society, as a human race. When you see a real woman, you shouldn't be saying she's strong, you should be saying she's real."
