See full video interview below.
Stewart on how Trek’s fame affect him?
Star Trek had a huge impact on that. In every way. in the way it affected my personal life, my financial security, my feelings about myself. I got so much to thank that show for.
Stewart on how Trek changed the way he felt about himself:
I got a lot nice things said about me for playing Jean Luc Picard. Some of them about my work as an actor, some of them about my appearance, which I had never considered before. Then launching my theater career again on that background of commercial notoriaty just felt very different. Everything about my feeling about being on the stage has gone through a total transformation now.
