Patrick Stewart Doesn’t Have A Big Ego Despite Massive Success, ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Director Proves

Director Jonathan Frakes shares that working with Stewart on ‘Star Trek: Picard’ was smooth.

In an interview with Michael Rosenbaum on the ‘Inside of You’ podcast, ‘Star Trek: Picard’ director Jonathan Frakes reflected on Patrick Stewart’s humility and cooperativeness in an industry that often inflates egos.

As revealed by Frakes in recent statements, Patrick Stewart, who is a long-time colleague and friend of Frakes, stands out for his approachable and adaptive nature on set:

“He’s putty. Absolute putty. He doesn’t give me any grief. No, he knows if I’m coming to him, I’ve either got an idea that he inspired or that he maybe missed a moment that he might like to try, or he’ll say, ‘I know, Jonny. Act better.’ And I’ll say, ‘Yeah, that would be great.’ Or his other thing is, ‘I know what you mean, Jonny. Think faster.’… But we’ve done a lot together. I mean, a lot.”

According to Frakes, Stewart is always ready to consider suggestions, whether they involve a new concept or refining a performance detail.
