Do you recall your first encounter with Mr. Nimoy?
The first encounter with him was in an elevator in San Diego when we both traveled down there to announce that I would be playing the role. It was a pretty cramped elevator and we hadn’t been formally introduced.
Everybody was trying to usher us in so that we were not accosted by the fans. And the elevator goes up really slowly and then the doors open and he just looks at me and he says, ‘You have no idea what you’re in for, kid’” and just walks out and I was like ‘Wait, come back.’
