Learning the Vulcan salute wasn't easy for Quinto

Learning the Vulcan salute wasn't easy for Quinto

Zachary Quinto may have been a dead ringer for Leonard Nimoy and the iconic character of Spock, but his hands didn't necessarily think so.  Quinto admits, however, one of the character's signature moves didn't come particularly easy.

 

"I spent a little time training my hands to be able to do the salute," Quinto says.  "I would rubber band my ring finger and my pinky finger while I was driving around Los Angeles and do little exercises in the months leading up till shooting."
