"Because I didn’t do the pilot I didn’t have influence over hiring the rest of the series regulars. But I was there, directing Zach at his first audition. It was an incredible, showstopping, performance. It was immediately evident that his range was phenomenal and I knew then and there we had something special. Zach is a true artist and I feel a deep affection for him. He is also a great person and a very giving actor to his fellow actors, to the crew and to the show. What’s especially amazing is that, as great as he is, I know how much he can still develop into the power of his craft. Beyond a doubt, I know that he will go on to greatness - because not only does he have the talent to achieve this he has the will, and I have immense respect for this quality within him."

Zachary attended the London Premiere on Monday night and we were there to greet him as an exuberant crowd gave him and the rest of the Star Trek cast a warm welcome.
Some had waited outside the Empire Leicester Square since 7am to catch a glimpse of the cast but it wasn’t until almost 5pm when the party got started. A custom blue Star Trek carpet was rolled out and the stars started to arrive, beginning with Simon Pegg (Scotty) in a traditional kilt. JJ Abrams, Eric Bana, Zoe Saldana, Chris Pine, John Cho and Karl Urban all attended and signed autographs for waiting fans whilst Zach’s brother Joe stalked the red carpet with two cameras, getting access which his fellow photographers could only dream of. Other attending celebs were Jonathan Ross with his kids, comedian Peter Serafanowicz who sported a Trek tshirt, Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond, Lorraine Kelly and Anthony Costa, formerly of boy band Blue.
After a seemingly endless round of interviews Zach began signing and without a hint of bias we can say that he was easily the most popular cast member. He diligently signed for as many people as possible and was careful to acknowledge every fan individually as he made his way along the barrier. Jonathan Ross stopped him on the carpet to introduce his kids.
Fans had come from all over the country to see Zach, some like us had tickets for the screening itself as they had been available to buy with the proceeds going to the Prince’s Trust. Inside the cinemas JJ Abrams introduced the film with Zach, Chris Pine and producers Bryan Burk and Jeffrey Chernov.
The vocal crowd were particularly excited to see Leonard Nimoy as Spock, Zachary giving Kirk a Vulcan nerve pinch, and Simon Pegg’s excitable turn as Scotty.
Review will be up shortly! Hope you like our pictures in the gallery.

Today Oliver Grigsby, writer of episode 3.19 'Shades of Gray' promised he would tweet his fave Zach anecdote if he got to 1000 followers. Here's what he wrote.
"So, one of the best experiences I had during "Shades of Gray" was doing an early rehearsal with Zach and John Glover. We met at Zach's house, along with Greg Beeman, the director, and Zach's dog. The 4 of us sat at a table and Zach and John read the scenes. It was incredible to watch these two immensely talented actors explore the text, amazing what they can do with the tiniest bit of inflection. The one thing that would um... spoil... the moment from time to time was that Zach's dog kept farting... adorable, but smelly dog :)"

Zach also revealed to People magazine that when he auditioned for Spock in Paris two years ago he gave himself two days off to explore and celebrate his birthday. He waxes lyrical about Le Baron Club on Avenue Marceau, Brasserie Lipp and Hotel Costes, so if you ever want to do a Zach-style Parisienne tour, then voila.

Paramount pictures have announced that they are planning a sequel to the reboot of Star Trek, which hits cinemas worldwide on May 7th.
Variety reports that writers Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof have been asked to deliver a script by Christmas this year, with a view to releasing the second film in the summer of 2011.
Lindelof told Variety; "There's obviously a lot of hubris involved in signing on to write a sequel of a movie that hasn't even come out yet, but we're so excited about the first one that we wanted to proceed."
"With a franchise rebirth, the first movie has to be about origin. But with a second, you have the opportunity to explore incredibly exciting things. We'll be ambitious about what we'll do."
Zachary has signed for three Star Trek films, which would see him possibly working on the project until 2013.
