classictrek: In an interview with Allan Asherman for The Making…


In an interview with Allan Asherman for The Making of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Leonard Nimoy had this to say about working with Nicholas Meyer:

He’s a terrific guy. Tremendous energy and very, very bright. I would say probably there are two sides to the coin when you are working with Nick in that he has a wonderful, childlike energy and excitement about what he does and it’s very infectious. At the same time, that same childlike quality  can sometimes be exasperating, but I got along with him wonderfully. I found him sometimes very obstinate when he believed that he was right about a point, and often he was. But at the same time, he was really willing to listen to your point of view, and in a number of cases would say, “Let me think about that.” And a couple of days later he would come back and say “I think you’re right, let’s do it that way,” about something that had to be done a week hence. I have no negative feelings about Nick at all…I really enjoyed working with him.
