Star Trek: Discovery – the “new” Spock in the words of Ethan Peck
The new season of Star Trek: Discovery saw the official return of Spock, played by Ethan Peck. In a recent interview with Comicbook during the TCA Winter 2019 Press Tour, the actor talked about the new look of his character, especially of the beard, and of the actors who have preceded him in the role.
“I think the beard is a physical manifestation of what is happening inside of him,” the actor explains, “And’ a sort of hermit, has had traumatic experiences that have brought to light things that can not be resolved or explained with his great intellect. In this season, you'll be faced his human side and I think the beard will strengthen its own the emergence of his human side”.
Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto Peck adds: “The Spock of the Fifth makes a little speech to himself for the timeline, while the united states and canada comes directly to my. I spent a lot of time to study her character, in the first few bars it's like you're continuously talking with him, I heard it in my head and I tried to internalize what he brought to Spock. It is inevitable that there has been an influence for the way of acting, it could not be otherwise, is fantastic. I just tried to internalize the overall interpretation, and “spit it” out, even with something of my own. I hope that works”.
Earlier, speaking to Entertainment Weekly, co-showrunner Alex Kurtzman has described the difficult time that is going through the character, including the complicated relationship with her step-sister, Michael Burnham.
“The Spock that we see in the second season of the Discovery is not what we know,”says Kurtzman, “Is really struggling, and if it weren't for this relationship with Michael would it not be the Spock that we know today. For this I like this story with him at the centre, is still not the iconic character that we all know, has not the physical ability at the moment, it is completely insecure and tries to make sense of its mysteries, and what is her place in the world. Through the relationship with Michael, is able to understand how “form” and become the Spock to which we are accustomed to. It's very exciting for us to treat the character from a different point of view, this narrative mode allows us to not to ruin the iconic image of Spock, but simply to tell you how this has been to create”.
