Thus Spake Zoe Saldana

According to Saldana, the science-fiction genre (or, at least, movies set in space) is a place where women can be fuller individuals. “I don’t have to subject myself to just being the love interest or playing a character that doesn’t feel relevant to the story or playing a woman that doesn’t feel like an actual depiction of a real woman,” she explained, adding, “When I read films in space and I’m working with these kinds of filmmakers there’s a neutral sense to the way they develop characters. It makes me feel very significant, very relevant and very excited.” —Salon

We hear you, Zoe!

Ripley out of the Alien films has to be my favourite example. There's the sense of her having a personal history that might not be relevant to the current action, but is solid and detailed and real.
