Patrick Stewart is putting pen to paper and writing about his life on screen and stage.
The actor has signed a deal to write his memoirs, although no title or release date has been announced yet.
“The idea of writing a memoir based on my life and career has been in my mind for several years, but always the demands of work have pushed it into the background. Today there are no demands, nor is there a prediction when there might be,” Stewart said.
“I am caught in the middle of shooting a new series, Star Trek: Picard, and I passionately want to see it through, but in the meantime … what? Well, I have a beautiful study in our house in Los Angeles, sunny and peaceful. I am 80 in a little over two weeks’ time. I have just treated myself to a gorgeous office chair. And … I have the time. But most important, I am loving what I am doing, even though I never thought I would or could.”
It’s expected Stewart will write about everything from Star Trek to his award-winning stage performances to his voice work on American Dad, and he will “reflect on his childhood in Yorkshire, England, marked by poverty and domestic violence; as well as his lifelong political advocacy and ongoing charity work.”
