Quinto On Nimoy And Spock

Having the support of the original Spock was very helpful to Zachary Quinto, but not for any advice on how to play Spock.

As reported by Crave Online, Nimoy's friendship was more important to Quinto than acting advice regarding Spock. "I think getting to know him [Nimoy] 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."

For Quinto, it was more useful to concentrate on Spock today rather than look to the past. "I really felt like my relationship to the character was specific to the text that I was playing and to the world which the character is being created right now, this time. I didn't feel beholden to Leonard other than the origins of what he created obviously, but I think the whole project was based in that philosophy. So it wasn't a problem."

He had no problem with Spock's struggle to maintain logic in spite of being half-human. When it comes to logic versus emotion, "'s something that I can relate to," explained Quinto. "I think it's something that a lot of human beings can relate to. It was really incredible to be able to embody a character that walks that line all the line, who really deals in holding both ends of that strata at all points."
