Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Waiting to begin work on Star Trek 2, Anton Yelchin admits that he is in the dark when it comes to details about the sequel, but he is eager and ready to get to work on the film.

The actor also spoke about his Russian accent, explaining that even though he was born in Leningrad, now St. Petersburg, his natural accent is long-gone. “I lost my accent years ago,” he said. “My accent is just for the movies. Walter Koenig‘s accent was so fun and wonderful to fool around with. It’s like the original series itself. It’s got this great camp quality to it. I embrace that.”

Zachary Quinto and Anton Yelchin could not imagine Star Trek 2 without J.J. Abrams as director and they are happy that he will be directing the sequel.

The Private Quinto

Friday, October 21st, 2011

While playing Spock on Star Trek XI and Sylar in Heroes made Zachary Quinto more visible, the actor is still very much a private person.

Some actors don’t mind unexpected publicity, but Quinto is not one of them. “…It’s like our culture is so rooted in voyeuristic obsession and the exposure of people’s lives in order to feel validated,” he said. “It’s terribly empty and sad. It leaves me with a diminished faith in humanity.”

Quinto: Trek Fans Supportive

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

After his announcement this weekend that he was gay, Zachary Quinto has received plenty of support from Star Trek fans and the public.

Quinto made the decision to come out after the suicide of fourteen-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer, and he hopes that his decision to come out publically will make people stop and think and act when it comes to prejudice and bullying. “We have to change the discourse and we have to let people know that there’s a real spirit of openness and acceptance, and not of judgment and hatred and intolerance,” he said. “And if me standing up and making this declaration in any way feeds that notion, then I’m even happier to do it.”
