In my opinion, only two actors have managed to portray an interesting and convincing Vulcan onscreen: Leonard Nimoy with his cool, sarcastic dry wit and Zachary Quinto with his repressed anger. All the other actors, the whisperers (Blalock), the sleepwalkers (Russ) and the snobbish (most of the others), didn't manage to find a way to play the part.
I liked Kirstie Alleyt's Saavik, but I'm not sure that counts if you include the whole Romulan thing.
Quinto was smarmy Vulcan #34 to me. Better than Blalock but I'm not sure about Russ.
