The good points about being in a long-running franchise

Picture Well obviously the steady work is something that we can never complain about as actors. We did a tour of a Tom Stoppard / Andre Previn play called �Every Good Boy Deserves Favour�. Patrick directed and Brent, Patrick, Gates and Colm and I were all in it, so we had an opportunity to cash in on the caché of - of Star Trek in that regard.

But on the other side of the coin, it�s a pigeonhole that one is put into. I�ve taken to the high road that it�s better to be type-cast than not to be cast at all. That�s my current philosophy on that.
