I had heard that before, but I was not aware that he had a friendship with Colm offscreen that was similar to their onscreen relationship! That's pretty awesome!
Jordan Hoffman: Who from the old days that you don’t get to see do you like to hang out with the most at conventions?
Alexander Siddig: You know I love hanging out with Nicky deBoer.
Jordan Hoffman: I see.
Alexander Siddig: She is just hilarious; great, great girl. And um if I see Colm Meaney we’ll have a drink and bitch at each other. That’s all we do. I realize looking back at my history with him, I went out with him twice a week every week for seven years – drinking. Boy, he can pack em away.
Jordan Hoffman: I would imagine.
Alexander Siddig: And all we did was fight. And I guess that’s what they did on the show too. But we fought in real life all the time. He would set me up, he’d take me to Irish bars where they hated English people. I would think they were being racist about the fact that I’m black and they weren’t. The just hated the English people, they would just hear my accent and they’d – and he just laughed his head off.
Jordan Hoffman: Did you ever actually play darts, though, is the real question.
Alexander Siddig: No. No. That would be very weird.
Jordan Hoffman: There needs to be a separation between art and life.
Alexander Siddig: Yes, because that was the only separation, the dart game.
