Q. And then you played Chekov again in Of Gods and Men, and the first part of that is finally going to be seen this month.

WK. I was initially very dispassionate about that project. I only agreed because Sky Conway is a very close friend of mine. Then when we started working on it-- it really wasn’t until I got on the set that I realized, here was a character with enormous conflict and tremendous passion—and again, nothing like what Chekov was ever allowed to show—a powerful character that would have been interesting to play under any circumstances, whether he was named Chekov or not. It became a wonderful challenge for me, and something that I really, really enjoyed as a performer.
