Spock to be beam down for actors masterclass…

It has been announced that ‘Star Trek into Darkness’ star Zachary Quinto will be the subject of this year’s Actors Masterclass at The Galway Film Fleadh on Friday July 12th.

Hosted by John Hubbard of Hubbard Casting, the masterclass will provide “an intensive interactive environment in the skills, methodology and aesthetics of film acting aimed at actors working or wanting to work more in the recorded media.”

Quinto, who has also had roles in ‘Margin Call,’ ‘American Horror Story,’ ’24,’ and ‘Heroes,’ will answer questions and provide tips on dealing with all the common fears actors have regarding work in front of the camera.

The Actors Masterclass, in association with Screen Training Ireland, is an actors-only event with limited places. For booking information contact Brónagh Keys on (091) 562200 or masterclasses@galwayfilmfleadh.com.

Celebrating its 25th year, the international film event kicks off Tuesday 9th July and runs until Sunday 14th July and will premiere the newest and the best in Irish cinema, with premieres of new Irish films each evening of the Fleadh and a Public Interview with guest of honour Saoirse Ronan (‘Byzantium,’ ’Hanna,’ ‘Atonement’) on Sunday, July 14th.

A full programme of events, screenings, talks and workshops will launch over on the official website www.galwayfilmfleadh.com on 25th June.
