Zach and Zoe was guest at The Jonathan Ross Show and did a great interview – Zach played banjo, you guys! – and I have screencaptures up in the gallery. The show can be watch below, Zach and Zoe appears at 02:48 mark:
It is no small matter to take on a role as iconic to a world of fans as Spock in the new Star Trek movies. But Zachary Quinto – one of Hollywood’s few openly gay film stars – is a forceful presence, with clear ideas of where he’d like his work to lead
Zachary Quinto’s eyebrows are a thing of wonder. They sit on his forehead like cat’s tails, arching and twitching as he speaks, lending everything he says a subtle emphasis. After a few minutes in their company, you become quite mesmerised by their expressive movements. It’s not inconceivable that Zachary Quinto’s eyebrows could have a successful Hollywood career all of their own.
So it seems a pity that the role for which Quinto is best known, the role that catapulted him to major box-office success, required these follicular features to be partly removed, covered by heavy make-up and painstakingly reapplied, hair by hair, in a process that lasted several hours. And all because Quinto is about to return to the big screen as the razor-browed Spock in the new Star Trek movie, directed by sci-fi wunderkind JJ Abrams.
It must have been odd, I say, to lose such a distinguishing part of his face.
“I know! Tell me about it,” says Quinto. “It’s an uncomfortable aspect of having to play the character, having to shave three-quarters of my eyebrows and maintain them every day plucking them – it’s very painful and tedious.”
There was a separate make-up artist who applied the famously pointy Vulcan ears and the whole process took “two hours and 45 minutes. So if we had a 6am call-time, I’d have to be there at 3am.” And is he a morning person? “No, no,” he grins. “Not at all.”
