“I’m very excited about S.J. being hired,” ha detto Pegg. “J.J. emailed us about that just before it was announced…Everybody was so excited. I think Zach [Quinto] has actually worked with her. I’ve seen stuff she’s done, and I think it’s a great choice, and it’s about time.” Previously, Clarkson directed Spock’s Zachary Quinto in later seasons of NBC’s Heroes.".
La Clarkson non è proprio una regista di primo pelo. Nella sua carriera, incentrata sulle serie tv, ha diretto episodi di Dexter, Ugly Betty, Bates Motel, Orange is the new black, Jessica Jones, The Defender e molti altri.
