Star Trek Into Darkness: Benedict Cumberbatch Reveals John Harrison Role



Korean website Never Movies have released some insightful interviews with cast and crew from Star Trek Into Darkness. Included is an explanation from J.J. Abrams as to why the film has been shot in 3D as well as the following excerpt from Benedict Cumberbatch, who talks a little about his role as the villain.

“He [John Harrison] is an extraordinary terrorist of sorts. He uses himself as a warrior with weapons and close hand combat to just reap devastation and havoc wherever he goes and a trail of destruction follows him. What is interesting from an acting point of view — beyond doing the stunts and choreographed fight sequences….was also the psychological warfare that he acts out. He has an incredible ability to control people’s minds to his bidding and make them – well confuse the radar of their loyalties and prerogatives, so that was great fun. So it was a great mixture of intense acting scenes and action scenes.”

You can watch all the interviews complete with Korean subtitles here at Never Movies.
