SD: First and foremost, how is your health doing since being diagnosed with COPD?
LN: That is very kind of you to ask. I am stable at the moment. I can’t walk too fast or too far. I’m currently attending rehab and trying to build up my stamina, but overall it is great.
SD: Are you still amazed at the continued popularity of Star Trek?
LN: I am and it is very flattering. I was recently asked my thoughts about the current batch of sci-fi movies and I find them dark and unenjoyable.
SD: Your role as Spock is a cultural icon, what was it like for you to see Zachary Quinto playing Spock in the reboot?
LN: It is just great. He is a great actor with a great heart. He really manifests the character of Spock. He truly was a pleasure to work with.
SD: As a photographer, what inspires you?
LN: I find inspiration through books, the internet, and friends. I am not one to carry my camera with me. I like to pick a topic/focus and then work from there.
SD: Being a Boston native, how exciting is to be performing with the Pops and what can you tell me about the show?
LN: I’m exciting to be returning to Boston. I performed with the Pops about 20 years ago and I am honored to be asked back. I have a great affection for the city especially because it is where I grew up. Boston gave me a sense of myself and shaped who I became. As for the show, I will be narrating while the Pops perform music from sci-fi movies. Thanks, Steve! “Live long and Prosper.”
