More Trek Cast Interviews

1 min read

Several more interviews with Star Trek into Darkness actors have emerged from CinemaCon 2013.

The latest batch of interviews comes from Alice Eve, Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and John Cho.

Eve spoke about playing a younger version of an established character. “I want [Carol Marcus] to be true,” she said. “You build a person from the ground up, which is the best thing in the world.”

Even though he played an established character, John Cho didn’t want to imitate George Takei. “I was unable to [do so],” he said. “His vocal register is unique in the human spectrum. It’s so low!”

Star Trek into Darkness “has maybe more action than the first [film],” said Cho. Since the introductions to the characters were already made in the first film, “…the script seemed thicker and the story seemed to move along a lot faster.”

Pine spoke about recreating Kirk, and how both the actor and the character were “getting older and maturing.” Kirk’s growing up process is a bit of a bumpy road. “It’s really, really, really hard for a guy like Kirk who is a stubborn prick,” said Pine.

Quinto spoke about his expectations about playing Spock and how he had to find his own version of the character, with help from J.J. Abrams and Leonard Nimoy.
