Hey all, I know these are kind of late but I just added 163 screencaptures of this week’s episode of Heroes entitled “Powerless” to the gallery. This will be the last episode for the forseeable future so I’ll be updating more stuff in the Zach gallery/video center soon!
Here’s a new E!Online with Kristen interview done on the day the finale scenes with Zach were shot.
Heroes star Zachary Quinto feels uncomfortable about the ongoing Hollywood writers strike because he’s required to work on the new Star Trek prequel while friends and colleagues protest.
The actor reveals he finished working on Heroes on the Friday before the strike began and started work on Star Trek with director J.j. Abrams the following Monday.
Many of his TV castmates have not returned to the set since the strike forced producers to halt filming – but he can’t even show his support.
Quinto explains, “To be working through this and to be required to work is really strange. It’s a combination of feeling really fortunate and oddly awkward and guilty and weird.”
But the actor sympathises with the striking writers, even though he won’t benefit from the outcome of the action.
He tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper, “The unfortunate need for the sacrifice of individuals to benefit for the group is uncomfortable and painful. The crew doesn’t benefit from the outcome of the negotiations. That’s difficult for me.”
According to Monsters and Critics, Star Trek star Zachary Quinto is wearing an elastic band round his fingers to to perfect the Vulcan salute.
“I’ve been practicing my salute all the time, even on the Heroes set. I’ve put an elastic band round my fingers loads to try and get it right. I need to brush up on this stuff.”
Regarding the Vulcan make-up, including the ‘pointy’ ears, Quinto says the process is extremely time-consuming.
“They put a bald cap on you, rub Vaseline in your eyebrows and then cover you in goo from your shoulders upwards. They keep your nostrils open with tubes while three people slather it all over your head. Then it dries, so they put the actual plaster on that.” he said
“Your head then weighs about 20lbs, and it takes about 25 minutes. If you’re claustrophobic, I imagine you’d be in big trouble. I swear, there were a couple of times when I had a take a really deep breath.”
Thanks to this community I have scans of Zach from the FHM December 2007 issue. Check them out here:
