Life Sir Patrick Stewart cannot believe in this immortalized handprint By weekster Posted on January 14, 2020 2 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Patrick Stewart (79) sometimes still can’t believe what his career has brought him. That was what the 79-year-old actor told on Monday during his speech of thanks after he had immortalized his handprint on the famous square in front of the Chinese Theater in Hollywood. “I still don’t quite believe it all” “I still don’t quite believe it all,” said Sir Patrick according to Entertainment Tonight. “I still have the idea that I can be awakened at any moment by someone who shouts: Patrick, Patrick, get up, you’re dreaming again.” Stewart started his career in the theater. In 1966 he became a member of the theater company Royal Shakespeare Company. From the 1980s onwards, he has booked major Hollywood roles, such as those of Captain Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation and subsequent films and Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series. The handprinting ceremony took place in the run-up to the launch of the Picard series, for which Stewart once again took on the role of his popular Star Trek character Jean-Luc Picard. In addition to the Briton, his former Star Trek: The Next Generation colleagues Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner and Jonathan Frakes can also be seen in the series, which will be shown in the Netherlands via Amazon.
