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."
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.
