[ # ] Sir Patrick Stewart almost had hair for Star Trek: TNG
October 20th, 2023 under Graham Norton, Sir Patrick Stewart/Sir Ian McKellen, Star Trek

We know Sir Patrick Stewart as bald. But if the studio execs had their way, he would’ve worn a wig on Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Today, when Picard was on The Graham Norton Show, he told the story about the audition process for the Sci-Fi series.

Stewart did three auditions, and he was getting ready to do the fourth for the heads of Paramount Studios. They decided they wanted to see what he would like with hair on his head. So, his agent asked him if he had a wig. The actor did, but it was still in London. Therefore, they had it flown over the pond to Los Angeles.

Finally, it was audition time, and he wore the hairpiece.

After it was over, he went to take it off. And the execs walked in to see what he would look like without it.

I think we all know which way they preferred him! Although, is it wrong for me to say I kind of like him with hair?
