Quinto Grateful For Spock Role

From donning Vulcan ears to meeting the original Spock, Zachary Quinto's Star Trek XI experience has been a good one.

As reported by Suicide Girls, this year has been a lucky one for Quinto. "This whole year for me has been such a blur of good fortune," he said. "The timing of the fact that the movie [Star Trek XI] happened during the strike and there were so many sort of fortuitous elements that lined up almost in a magical way. You could never even being to conceive of that unless it was happening to you, you know. So I feel like I couldn't be in a better spot. I couldn't be happier to be where I am and I have faith in the fact that that alone will lead me to whatever the next experience I'm meant to have is."

One of the best parts of the experience was getting to know Leonard Nimoy. "I think getting to know him was one of the greatest honors of this experience," said Quinto. "Having him involved and having him available and supportive was great. I have the utmost respect for him as a person. I feel really so honored to know him. We had many conversations and he's given me not just one nugget of advice, but it's been the unfolding of a friendship and a support system. That's really how I feel about it."

Working on Star Trek XI has been educational and Quinto is thankful for the opportunity to have done so. "The experience evolved for me in so many different phases and each one of them is it's own unique lessons," said Quinto, "and it's own unique challenges and they're very common sort of rewards so I'm very grateful for all of it and I'm really excited to see where it leads me from here."

Quinto even had praise for the Vulcan ears he had to wear for his role as the half-human, half-Vulcan. "You know what? I feel like it pulled together really well. The makeup and hair department on the movie did a phenomenal job so I'm really excited to see that put together."
