Benedict Cumberbatch talks 'Star Trek' villain role (NME)
Benedict Cumberbatch has teased more details about his role in Star Trek Into Darkness.
The British actor plays the main villain John Harrison in JJ Abrams' forthcoming sci-fi sequel. The character has previously been described as a 'one man weapon of mass destruction'.
Now, the actor has revealed more about the character. He told SFX: "As a psychological terrorist, he's someone who can plant an idea that's as vicious as a bomb and explode loyalties and expose relationships and try and turn people against one another to do his bidding."
The actor continued: "He really disrupts the unity aboard the ship, both physically and mentally. And he's a worthy adversary – there's a lot of shadowplay going on with him and Kirk and Spock, Kirk primarily, but both of those characters – he knows how to manipulate them."
