Smile Zachary Quinto Talks Star Trek Philosophy, Typecasting in New Interview

Rising star Zachary Quinto, Trek's new Spock, spoke of the franchise's vision of the future in a wide-ranging new interview with Buzz18.com:

Quote:
I think what Gene Roddenberry set out to create when he made the original series was almost subversive. He dealt with themes that people had trepidation about openly discussing in the late sixties - like racial, social and political issues. It was ahead of its time in many ways and it sparked an intellectual interest that cultivated the fan base. It is also, at its core, an optimistic piece. It offers hope and brings people together and encourages them to celebrate a unified spirit.
He also addressed issues of typecasting, calling himself more of a science fiction fan than ever before.

Thank you for the link. I especially liked this answer. Actors have to trust the writers and directors so much.

"Did you guys ever worry of looking ridiculous? Looking around the room and seeing a bunch of grown ups in costumes shouting all of that outer space jargon, didn't it ever cause a few laughs to arise?

It is just about commitment. Acting is truthful behavior in imaginary circumstances, so all this was in a way was not questioning the circumstances. Everyone did a fantastic job in that regard. You do let off steam between takes. You hope that it all translates but that is the nature of film and TV. You hope the camera captures what you are doing. Our story is pretty far fetched but we all plugged into it with a grain of truth

You're welcome.

True actors must be brave in the face of ridicule. I think it must be part of the actor's craft to believe in his role, for if he does not, who will? It's good to know that Quinto believes in Spock, and Trek.

Great reply.
