Andrew Robinson shared his memories of his time on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine where he portrayed the multi-layered Cardassian Garak.
The first thing that Robinson had to get used to in his role as Garak was adjusting to the makeup necessary to play a Cardassian. “It was deceptively complicated playing Garak,” said Robinson. “Obviously, one of the complications was all the makeup and the costume, which was very uncomfortable, very confining, and the makeup, which I had a bit of a claustrophobic reaction to it at the beginning. But I got over that.”
