LeVar Burton Talks Equality, Gene Roddenberry, And The Genius Of ‘Star Trek’

LeVar Burton Talks Equality, Gene Roddenberry, And The Genius Of 'Star Trek'

Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s LeVar Burton appeared on Canadian talk show George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight on Tuesday. Burton, who played Lt. Cmdr. Geordi La Forge on TNG for seven seasons, discussed Star Trek’s vision of equality, series’ creator Gene Roddenberry, and more.

The equality shown in the original Star Trek is one of the first things that drew him to the show, Burton told Stroumboulopoulos. “Everybody’s welcome. That was the genius of Star Trek for me growing up, was Gene Roddenberry.” Burton said. “I was and still am a huge science fiction fan. In Gene’s vision there was a place for me and that meant a lot.”

“In the original pilot it was the woman who became Gene’s wife Majel Roddenberry, who was the first first officer. Then they recast, they did a little shuffling and they brought in Leonard Nimoy. We lost a woman but we gained a Vulcan.” he said.

Burton recalled his initial impressions of Roddenberry, saying “What my relationship with Gene ultimately represented for me was really coming to terms with the humanity in our heroes. Gene was very contradictory in nature. He was this visionary and he loved his booze and nothing pleased him more than seeing a woman in a short skirt. So I really had to recognize that in addition to being this wonderful visionary he was still a guy, he was a man. And we’ve all got faults, we’ve all got foibles and the best thing we can do is wake up every morning and in spite of our mistakes, get up and go out there and do it all over again.”

WATCH: Patrick Stewart Talks Star trek Fans And The Olympics On David Letterman

On Thursday, Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Sir Patrick Stewart appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Stewart, best known for his role as Captain Jean Luc Picard on TNG and Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men films, was referred to by Letterman as “one of the most recognizable men in all of show business,” to which he responded by pointing at the top of his forehead and saying “from here up.”

He went on to say that he’s noticed that people with certain “occupations or professions that seem to be particularly obsessed with Star Trek.”

“If you work unseasonable or unreasonable or long hours, then the chances are that you’ll be sitting at home or in a hotel room at 4-o’clock in the morning flicking channels, and ‘Oh my god “Space, the final frontier…”, there will be.” he said.

In addition to Star Trek, Stewart discussed carrying the 2012 Olympic torch and his thoughts on the upcoming 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Happy Birthday, Patrick Stewart

Happy Birthday, Patrick Stewart

Happy 73rd birthday to Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Patrick Stewart, who was born on July 13th 1940 in West Riding of Yorkshire, England and has become a favorite of all Trekkie generations.

His theater, television and film work, as well as his dedication to charity make him an example of talent, hard work and good will for all to admire. Stewart group up in a poor household where he faced domestic violence problems. He became interested in drama back in 1951, when, aged 11, he entered Mirfield Secondary Modern School. At 15, he left school to increase his participation n the local theater. He also found a job as a newspaper reporter but he would attend rehearsals during his work hours and then invent the stories to report for the newspaper.

Stewart became a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1966 where he appeared next to actors such as Ben Kingsley and Ian Richardson. In January 1967, he made his first TV appearance on Coronation Street as a Fire Officer. For his 1970 Broadway debut, he participated in Peter Brook’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a critically acclaimed production. In 1980, Stewart joined the Royal National Theater in the early 1980s.

His Star Trek TNG work began in 1987 and continued, to the delight of millions of Trekkies, until 1994. In a 1997 interview, Sir Patrick shared his pride of the social and educational message TNG offered to young viewers, “The fact is all of those years in Royal Shakespeare Company – playing all those kings, emperors, princes and tragic heroes – were nothing but preparation for sitting in the captain’s chair of the Enterprise.” He truly made it so exciting, as he engaged the audience at the controls of the legendary starship:

In 2006, Stewart made a video against domestic violence for Amnesty International. He has also established a scholarship at the University of Huddersfield, where he is Chancellor, to fund post-graduate study into domestic violence and has become a patron of Refuge, a UK charity for abused women.

He has also boldly entertained his fans with his humorous view on less serious subjects, such as baldness:

So happy birthday, sir! A cup of earl gray may be the captain’s favorite but perhaps champagne is in order.
