British web site SFX Online is reporting on an interview with Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard), which appeared in a recent edition of the Times.
In the interview, Stewart said he lost interest in TNG the longer he was on the show. "I found the longer the series went on, the fewer I wanted to watch. [...] And I think that was becasue in the last couple of years I was fighting boredom. I think we kept the standard pretty consistent, but creatively I was bored and frustrated. I felt that my work was not especially interesting and I wasn't drawn to watch it."
In addition, he said in the interview that he was currently preparing for Star Trek X, and that he expected that to be his last Trek movie. You can find the full report here, thanks go out to Elaine Butler for pointing me to it!
And in other Patrick Stewart news, AP is reporting he unveiled his waxwork double in the Madame Tussauds in London yesterday, saying "It's extraordinary. Wendy [Neuss, his fiancee] doesn't even know which is which, it's wonderful. It's an excellent waxwork, a great likeness". Thanks go out to Robert Hoge for this!
And finally, Alex Thompson sends along word that Stewart is to appear on BBC Radio 1 on Thursday morning, between 10am and noon, to talk about the new X-Men film.
