Cinescape has put up a summary of a New York Daily News interview with Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard). In the interview, Stewart mentions that he only signed on for TNG because he was told it would not be successful:

"I was assured that it wouldn't be successful - that was the only reason I did it. I was so naive. I thought I was looking at six months work, and it wasn't until they offered it to me that my agent spelled out it was a six-year commitment."

"I was horrified. I had things to do, my wife and children were in England, but everyone said, 'Don't worry, it's a nice idea but it's not going to work. You cannot revive something that has become such an icon in the entertainment business.'"

A bit more from Stewart can be found at Cinescape. Thanks go out to Lee Jamilkowski for the link.

In addition, the newly opened has uploaded an interview with Roxann Dawson (B'Elanna Torres), in which she also provides a few spoilers for upcoming Voyager episodes.
