Eric Bana had ‘fun’ playing baddie in new ‘Star Trek’ movieApril 27th, 2009 - 6:33 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 27 (ANI): It looks like Aussie actor Eric Bana loved his baddie role in the new ‘Star Trek’ movie.
Bana, 40, who is comfortable with tattoos, has jagged intergalactic designs covering his face like armour as he plays the part of villain Nero in the new Star Trek.
“Hopefully I won’t spark a trend,” the Telegraph quoted him as saying.
Turning the tousle-haired actor into his character Nero, the bald Romulan leader with large pointy ears and a warped, gravelly voice, was no easy task and the transformation took hours of make-up.
“It was so much fun,” Bana said.
“There you are in the make-up chair, freaking out. By the end of the first week it’s very normal, and when the other Romulans took their make-up off, I didn’t know how to take them,” he added.
This Star Trek prequel, directed by JJ Abrams centres on the early years of Captain James T Kirk (played by Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto) and his crew, when the alien Romulan race attacks their Federation starship.
‘Star Trek’ is out on May 8. (ANI)
