In the past Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy have talked much about how they bonded making of the new Star Trek movie. Nimoy has clearly become a mentor for the new Spock, but in a new interview with Sci-Fi Wire, Quinto notes that it was also Orci and Kurtzman’s script that drove his performance.
Quinto on what he based his Spock characterization on:
I really felt like my relationship to the character was specific to the text I was playing and to the world in which the character is being created right now, this time, so I didn’t feel beholden to Leonard, other than to honor the origins of what he created, obviously. But I think the whole project was based in that philosophy, so it wasn’t a problem.
Quinto also commented on how “cool” he thouight the new Comic Con posters were, noting “I think it’s a hearkening of what’s to come.”
