Simon Pegg spills the secrets on Star Trek Beyond

[Words: James Gill]

We love Simon Pegg because he’s living the life most of us could only dream about. And he’s living the sh*t out of it. Let’s face it: which film fan wouldn’t, secretly, want to become a film star?

As career trajectories go, his takes some beating: from stand-up to co-creator of beloved sitcom (Spaced) to star of breakout British smash hit (Shaun Of The Dead) to Hollywood heavyweight. Simon Pegg, we salute you.

We caught up with the best British export since woollen textiles to talk Star Trek Beyond. Not only is Pegg one of the main characters in the form of the Enterprise’s loveable chief engineer Scotty, but he also had co-writing duties on the blockbuster.

So who better to share some secrets about the film, out in cinemas now...
