Happy 70th – Sir Patrick ‘Jean-Luc Picard’ Patrick ! July 13, 2010Posted by showmescifi in scifi.
Patrick Stewart celebrates his 70th birthday today!
Sure Stewart was an actor long before Star Trek TNG made him into a SciFi icon.
We remember well watching him as the evil Sejanus in I,Claudius (1974..) ..but for us here at ShowMeSciFi.com..it is his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard which we will always think off first.
Picard was the most the core element in that first episode of TNG that held the show together -his Shakesperean presence gave the show an order of dramatic magnititude trek had never seen before — or since.
