Christopher Eccleston On Star Trek, Thor And Comics

Staff Writer

Christopher Eccleston has revealed that it was Star Trek that he sided with while growing up. The actor, who plays Malekith in Thor: The Dark World, told Metro, “As a kid, I hated Star Wars but I loved Star Trek. And I’ve since realised the reason I love Star Trek is because it is entirely about character. You have villains and some space but it’s basically a brilliantly written love triangle between Kirk, Spock and Bones - lieutenant Uhura being the ‘beard’ from what I could see.” Eccelston told Metro that he did the Thor: The Dark World film mainly for the money, saying, “I primarily do these films mainly for the money.” When a rep for the film company added, “But you were a fan of Marvel Comics when you were a kid…?” Eccleston added, “As a kid, I was not particularly drawn to comics. I wasn’t much of a reader, I was always playing out on the street.” The former Doctor Who star also told Metro about getting into the costume for his character in Thor: The Dark World, outlining, “I would get up at 2.15am, be picked up at 3am and sit down in the make-up chair at 4am. At about 10am, I would leave the chair and it would be another 20 minutes getting me into costume. Then there would be two make-up artists and two special effects people around me all day. I was a special effect. It was a challenge keeping your patience and focus.” When asked would he ever take part in a Star Trek film, the actor said, “The original Star Trek series was important to me. But I wouldn’t whore for it.” Thor: The Dark World is out next Wednesday.
