The secrecy behind director J.J. Abrams' next "Star Trek" movie is incredibly high. We still don't know the names of many of the characters from "Star Trek Into Darkness" or what the connection is between Benedict Cumberbatch's villain and the timeline of the original series. When I speak to actress Nanzeen Contractor about working on the film--her first 800 lb gorilla summer feature--she says that she wasn't even allowed to read the script in its entirety.
"At the end of each day on set, there was a guy who would collect our sides (script pages). We couldn’t take them home, and they were all color-coordinated and had watermarks with our names on them," Contractor tells me. "And then when I asked J.J. some questions, he’d say, 'Oh, but it’s in the script” and I’d say, “but I haven’t read the script.'"
For the young actress, this was a little bit of a challenge given that her character is someone she describes as being pivotal to the film alongside "Doctor Who" actor Noel Clarke who plays her husband. Could they be the parents of the galaxy's most dangerous genetically-engineered child?
