For Christopher Lloyd, playing Kruge in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock was fun, even with the makeup and prosthetics he was required to wear for the part.
Lloyd is still a fan favorite and appears at conventions to talk about the role he played back in 1984. “[Conventions are] part of the Star Trek mystique, I guess” he said. “It’s a role that I thoroughly enjoyed. It was fun to play an evil character that has no remorse about anything he does. The conventions are very interesting. They’re a lot of fun. It means a lot to the fans to come and meet the people from the shows and the films that they appreciate. It’s a chance to say hello and to have something signed.”
