As he draws Mr Spock for the third largest time in Star Trek Beyond, the actor talks about coming out, building the cinema without Leonard Nimoy and playing Glenn Greenwald in Oliver Stones brand-new film
When Zachary Quinto, who plays Mr Spock for the third time in Star Trek Beyond, sees London in the spring, we find ourselves in a strange location. The movie is still 3 months of liberation and neither of us has heard it. Had it been ready in time, it would have been nice to ask him how this came to be the most melancholy entering thus far in the rebooted franchise, what with Captain Kirk fighting with ennui and daddy topics while Spock destroys off its interaction with Uhura due to an existential crisis. Why not just go the whole hog and call it Star Trek Manopause?
Detailed the issue of the content of the report, though, can be neither asked nor reacted on the morning we converge, while the revelation that Sulu is homosexual in the brand-new cinema which induced the original Sulu, George Takei, to complain publicly about the screenwriters dabbling with the specific characteristics back-story is still some way off. So extremely is the death of 27 -year-old Anton Yelchin, who plays the perky Enterprise crew member Mr Chekov.
But there is already a disconcerting seriousness about the 39 -year-old Quinto. It may be attributable to him having just made his first Star Trek movie without Leonard Nimoy, the original Spock, who died in February 2015. Or perhaps he is wondering what he is doing on a Sunday morning in a inn chamber more than 3,000 miles from the Manhattan loft he shares with his partner, the example Miles McMillan, trying and failing to discuss a film that isnt even finish this. Or perhaps hes simply a sombre sort. There has always been a seriousnes to his handsomeness: the unsmiling opening, the dense, inky lashes of his eyebrows. He is dressed today in a charcoal grey jumper, pitch-black trousers and pitch-black boots, with an impressive galleon of black hair piled high. Framed against a enormous pitch-black sofa, he seems at times to be nothing but a monstrous swimming head.
