Captain Picard Day

by Pstonie (16 June 2004)

Though it is called that, I'd like to take some time to talk about Patrick Stewart instead, since no one has taken the initiative to have a Patrick Stewart Day.


"When it comes to sheer quality of entertainment, there's little better than 'Beavis and Butthead'!"
I decided to read up on Patrick Stewart after seeing his appearance on The Kumars at No. 42. My favourite TNG (and Star Trek) character has always been Captain Picard. I believe that the distinction and culture that Stewart brings to the show is unparalleled.

Other than saying that, there isn't much else that you won't find in a biography. But here are a few interesting facts about Mr. Stewart:

  o Eventhough his stage experience started early, he quit school at the age of fifteen and became a journalist.

  o A year after, he became a furniture salesman in order to save money to become a professional actor.

  o In order to break the typecast that is often caused by shows like Star Trek, he began to develop his one man production of A Christmas Carol. The performances started in 1988 and drew rave reviews as it continued for eight years every Christmas.

  o He took the role of Picard on the understanding that the show would never get off the ground. It was believed that they could never replicate the success of the original series.

  o Patrick is a huge Beavis and Butt-Head fan and has been quoted as saying: "When it comes to sheer quality of entertainment, there's little better than 'Beavis and Butthead'!"

As you can imagine, it look little more than that quote about Beavis and Butt-Head to convince me that a logg must be done about this brilliant actor. I suggest that you read his biographies at Patrick Stewart - The Actors Actor and the Patrick Stewart Network.
