Nichols famous for playing Uhura in the original Star Trek saga is excited about director J.J. Abrams new version of Star Trek, slated for release late 2008, and she wouldnt mind having a small part in the flick.
Says Nichols, It would be so nice to have a cameo in the movie. I would love it!
Like her Trekker co-star Leonard Nimoy, who played the original Spock, Nichols would love to take the new Uhura, played by Zoe Saldana, under her wing.
Nichols explains, Im looking forward to meeting Zoe. The new Spock, whos played by Zachary Quinto, has already talked to Leonard [Nimoy] and hes very excited about becoming a Trekker. Leonard is happy hes in the movie too.
And while Nichols is ecstatic about the remake, she believes shes not the only one.
Nichols adds, Its just terrific to know that [Star Trek creator] Gene Roddenberrys legacy will live on, in the same image as the original. I bet you Gene is up in Heaven right now going, Oh, yeah. Right On!
