Actress Heather Langenkamp (Nancy in 1984’s “A Nightmare on Elm Street”) keeps very busy. When not working in front of the cameras, or signing autographs at conventions, or making a documentary (“I Am Nancy,”) she assists her husband (David LeRoy Anderson) with makeup effects on feature films such as “Cabin in the Woods.” In a recent interview, at the Rock and Shock Horror Con in Worchester, Massachusetts, Langenkamp briefly discussed her film role in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek Into Darkness.” This is what she had to say.
“Well, I had the opportunity to play a small part in Star Trek, so I’m looking forward to that. I can’t tell you anything about that, but that was a thrill for me. My husband and I worked on the makeup effects for Star Trek. He designed some of them, so that’s the thing we’re looking forward to most. Hopefully we’ll be working on something else in January. We don’t know what that will be yet, but hopefully it’ll be a really fun job.”
Based on the original Gene Roddenberry television series, “Star Trek Into Darkness” will beam its way into theaters on May 17th, 2013 in 2D, 3D theaters, and IMAX 3D versions. The film will star Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoë Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, Bruce Greenwood, Peter Weller, Noel Clarke, Heather Langenkamp, Nolan North, Nazneen Contractor, Elly Kaye, Tom Archdeacon, Ser’Darius Blain, Joseph Gatt, and Kraisit Agnew. Alex Kurtzman, Damon Lindelof, and Roberto Orci wrote the screenplay, while J.J. Abrams directs.
