Stewart - 'Star Trek' Was Theatrical
 
His irritation with journalists led <font color=yellow>Patrick Stewart</font> to make a statement which he later regretted regarding his work before <i>Star Trek</i> <p>As reported by the <A class="link" HREF="http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk">Times Online</A>, sometimes words come back to haunt one, as Stewart found after he claimed that all his years at the RSC and the National, playing kings, emperors, princes and tragic heroes, had been nothing but preparation for sitting in the captain's chair of the Enterprise.<p>"I was fed up with journalists constantly suggesting that I was slumming it," said Stewart. "I said it in a sort of weary defiance, but there was some kind of truth in it: Star Trek was very theatrical, a throne, a king, classical in a sense. And the people who did it well all had a background on the stage."<p>Stewart is again appearing on the stage. He has recently played Mark Antony in <i>Antony and Cleopatra</i>, Prospero in <i>The Tempest</i>, Malvolio in <i>Twelfth Night</i> and Macbeth in <i>Macbeth</i>. He will be portraying Claudius in <i>Hamlet</i> at the Courtyard Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. <i>Hamlet</i> will run from July 24-November 15.<p>To read more, head to the article located <A class="link" HREF="http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/stage/theatre/article4317650.ece">here</A>.<center></center>

The people who did it well? :wtf: And who, pray tell, might that be? And more interesting is: who is it not, in his opinion?

I'm not sure. Sirtis, McFadden en Burton have backgrounds in theatre. Not sure about Spiner, Frakes or Dorn. Maybe it was a "well" as in, "Well, you see..." ? Interpunction can be a bitch :borg:
