Jennifer Morrison still won’t say what character she is playing in the new Star Trek movie, but we know it is Winona Kirk..mother of James T. Kirk. Morrison tells Hollywood.com that she is sworn to secrecy regarding film details, joking “You have no idea how many forms I signed. I signed my life away!” But she did talk more about the shoot, meeting Leonard Nimoy and dealing with Star Trek fandom.
Morrison on Star Trek secrecy
It was really crazy. I felt like I was in a videogame or something. We all had code names and we had to be in golf carts that had black covering and make sure that no one saw our costumes and we had assigned cloaks–we had to have cloaks on and hoods up so that no one could see our costumes if we were outside the stage. I get it, because the Star Trek fans are so intense about it and they’re doing a great job of keeping it all very secretive, but yeah, it was kind of fun. You feel like you’re on a secret mission or something.
On meeting Nimoy
He’s great. He’s awesome. It was brief. He was on set during one of my scenes and we just kind of chatted for a little bit and he’s very excited about it and seems to be super cool.
…and is she prepared for Star Trek fans?
No! I have no idea. People are trying to explain to me and I really don’t think that I grasp it, but I’m excited.
