Speculation had been running wild that Zachary Quinto was going to take a break from playing Spock in the ‘Star Trek’ films.
In an interview Quinto recently stated, “I’m stepping away from ‘Star Trek’ for at least two years – no movies, no conventions, no anything for a while.”
But this was all a big misunderstanding, which Quinto cleared up on his blog saying, “I have been inundated with questions and confusion about a comment I made during an interview with wired – about the new atari star trek online game – in which I said I am stepping away from trek for the next two years. obviously I will be a part of any upcoming films… reprising my role as spock. what I meant was that in the meantime I won’t be making any public appearances related to the franchise – or doing any more auxiliary projects pertaining to the trek universe. i will be focusing my efforts on other projects and preparing to shoot the next film – which will be released in june of 2012… two years from now. hence the no trek for two years remark. worry not trekkers. it was a misunderstanding of context. I am not spock. but I am spock. all at the same time.”
