Thomas Middleditch, star of HBO’s Silicon Valley, challenged Sir Patrick Stewart to a game of “F—, Marry, Kill” using characters from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
On the latest edition of Variety’s Actors on Actors, which features one-on-ones between this year’s Emmy contenders, Thomas Middleditch asked Patrick Stewart some personal questions about the characters of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
“Who would you want to have sexual intercourse with, who would you want to marry, and then who would you want to kill out of the following three: Will Riker, Deanna Troi and Data?” Middleditch asked Stewart.
Sir Patrick did an admirable job of his first ever game of “F—, Marry, Kill”.
“The kill would have to be Riker because he’s big and scary and very dominating,” says Stewart. “For a wife I would choose Deanna, but just as a kind of one-night stand… I would choose Data because, well think about it.”
“There was an episode where he had to present his sexual equipment for discussion. Brent Spiner (who played the character of Data), who is a wonderful actor and a very funny man, used to say, ‘he’s fully functional, in fact he has three speeds.’”
Season Four of Actors on Actors will air on PBS this June.
