Spock gets in touch with his human side

From Yahoo

J.J. Abrams' "Star Trek" reboot had gorgeous production design, stunning action and enough lens flares to make you think the entire universe was encased in some sort of glass dome. But perhaps even more striking was the unique humanistic spin on the character of Spock, played with pitch-perfect precision by Zachary Quinto.

Quinto's young Vulcan made for a much more emotional Starfleet science officer than the, well, more logical Spock played by Leonard Nimoy. Quinto's Spock was a man struggling with his duality as his human passions often conflicted with his reserved Vulcan upbringing. It was both strange and incredibly cathartic to see Spock lash out in violence after Kirk's rebellious antics and chiding pushed him too far.

Spock's internal struggle will be a focal point of "Star Trek Into Darkness" as well.

"I think we tapped into something in the first film that a lot of people weren't expecting, which is the emotional undercurrent and how powerfully it runs through him," said Quinto in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. "That continues in this film. There are things that happen to him -- and things that he's part of -- that are incredibly personal. That was really exciting for me both physically and emotionally."
