There is something about Patrick Stewart that makes me compelled to watch him, no matter what the show or film is. He will always be Jean Luc Picard though, no matter what he goes on to star in, I'll always love him best in that red suit on the Enterprise. "Make it so".
I love his performace as Scrooge! Never used to like that sort of film, but he was so brilliant in it!
Being a Yorkshore lass I love how proud he is of his routes. So many English actors go and make it big in the states and deny their routes.
