It seems a day doesn’t go by without a new interview with Zachary Quinto. This time, the actor who will be Spock discussed his relationship with his predecessor and soon-to-be co-star, Leonard Nimoy, with National Ledger. “His involvement and support really mean the most to me at this point,” he says. “To step into a role this iconic and have the actor who created it at your side — it’s a true gift.” He again expressed his hope in getting to know Nimoy “as a person and as an actor,” referring to him as “an incredibly multifaceted and fascinating artist.” Quinto says he is already practicing his own characterization of Spock – in between takes on Heroes.
Dinner for Spocks
We already know that Nimoy and Quinto are becoming fast friends and have met with each other several times to discuss the film – including Nimoy having Quinto over to dinner just a few weeks ago. Now it appears that Quinto wants to make that a regular thing, saying he would “like to meet once or twice a week, for dinner or whatever” before production on the the new Star Trek movie begins. “I’m cultivating as much of a relationship as he’s willing to have.” However that will have to wait as Quinto notes that both actors are currently traveling in separate parts of the world (and not together as previously thought).
