During the filming of Star Trek (2009) Zachary Quinto could not manage to properly do the Vulcan salute. Eventually, JJ Abrams had to glue his fingers together in order for Quinto to do it correctly
“Zachary Quinto had such a hard time training his hand to make the Vulcan salute for the new Star Trek movie director J.J. Abrams had to glue his fingers together.
Quinto plays a younger version of Leonard Nimoy’s original Spock in the new sci-fi movie, but couldn’t train his digits to separate for the “”live long and prosper”” Vulcan salute.
The actor was so desperate to get the V-shaped hand gesture right he even tried binding his fingers with rubber bands – but it didn’t work, forcing Abrams to reach for the glue pot.
A source tells the New York Post a fed-up Abrams “”glued Zachary’s fingers together during filming”” to finally get the shot.”
