As he represents Mr Spock for the third largest time in Star Trek Beyond, the actor talks about coming out, realise the film without Leonard Nimoy and playing Glenn Greenwald in Oliver Stones brand-new film
When Zachary Quinto, who plays Mr Spock for the third largest time in Star Trek Beyond, inspects London in the spring, we find ourselves in a strange position. The movie is still 3 months of liberation and neither of us has pictured it. Had it been ready in time, it would have been nice to ask him how this came to be the most sorrowful entryway so far in the rebooted dealership, what with Captain Kirk fighting with ennui and daddy problems while Spock breaks off his relationship with Uhura due to an existential crisis. Why not just go the whole hog and call it Star Trek Manopause?
Detailed questions about the content of the report, though, can be neither requested nor refuted on the morning we match, while the revelation that Sulu is lesbian in the new movie which spurred the original Sulu, George Takei, to complain publicly about the screenwriters twiddling with the specific characteristics back-story is still some way off. So more is the death of 27 -year-old Anton Yelchin, who plays the perky Enterprise crew member Mr Chekov.
But there is already a perplexing 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 hotel chamber more than 3,000 miles from the Manhattan loft he shares with his partner, the prototype Miles McMillan, trying and failing to discuss a film that isnt even finished yet. Or perhaps hes plainly a sombre sorting. There has always been a seriousnes to his handsomeness: the unsmiling mouth, the thick-witted, inky flogs of his eyebrows. He is garmented today in a charcoal grey jumper, black trousers and black boots, with an impressive galleon of pitch-black hair piled high. Framed against a enormous pitch-black sofa, he seems at times to be nothing but a monstrous swimming head.
