When playing the Vulcan Soval, Gary Graham took suggestions and had some of his own to offer regarding his role as the Vulcan Ambassador to Earth.
“I asked Rick Berman who the Vulcans are,” said Graham. “I had gotten the role, so I had an inkling. But Rick told me — they aren’t beings without emotion; on the contrary, they are so passionate, they realized they needed to learn how to suppress those emotions for their society to survive. That was my key to understanding Vulcans.”
