The 25th Galway Film Fleadh (9 – 14 July, 2013)
The 25th Galway Film Fleadh, in association with Hubbard Casting and Screen Training Ireland, have announced that Zachery Quinto will be the subject of this year’s Actors Masterclass.
“I have an inherent understanding to his (Spock’s) nature, which is one of duality – the head versus the heart. That is certainly something I can relate to. As someone who has been considered pretty intellectual and wordy, I also have a deep well of emotional life. I understand what it means to be in constant relationship to both of those aspects of myself.”
The role of Spock required an actor capable of cultivating a strong emotional life that lies just under the surface, only exploding forth at times of great duress. Feeling emotions but only rarely emoting them is something counter-intuitive to most actors but Quinto absolutely nailed the balance in his big-screen breakthrough, garnering rave reviews for his portrayal and helping the film earn over $250 million internationally, making it the most successful film of the long-running Star Trek franchise.
The prolific actor has gone on to star in such popular TV shows as 24, Heroes and American Horror Story, as well as producing and starring in Margin Call. Now, fresh from reprising his role as Mr. Spock in Star Trek into Darkness, Quinto is preparing to make his long-anticipated return to the West of Ireland for the 25th Galway Film Fleadh.
The Actors Masterclass will be hosted by John Hubbard of Hubbard Casting and will provide an intensive interactive environment in the skills, methodology and aesthetics of film acting aimed at actors working or wanting to work more in film. The masterclass will cover such topics as:
• Starting out as an actor • Dealing with casting directors • Securing an agent • Preparing for an audition • Working on set • Relationship with the director and many more.
