Patrick Stewart: Chris Pine Was Brilliant!
Before heading out to run errands, Chris Pine gets up early and heads across the street to grab a cup of coffee on Monday morning (June 15) in Los Angeles.
Patrick Stewart, who played Enterprise captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation, told British tabloid the Daily Express that he loved the new Star Trek so much, he took his grandchildren to see it.
“I loved it,” said Stewart “It was a very, very odd experience to be in the cinema watching a new Star Trek movie that I wasn’t in. With the exception of Leonard Nimoy (the original Spock), I didn’t know any of the cast. But it’s still Star Trek. I got a great kick out of it. [Chris Pine] was brilliant, charming, truthful, funny and utterly delightful.”
