"Jean Luc Picard" was a perfect role for an actor with such commanding presence, and its undoubtedly one of my favourite roles offered by Patrick Stewart. But a glimpse at his IMDb page just touches on a career with the kind of depth most "actors" envy.
I can't think of anything I have seen him in that I didn't like or at least appreciate his talent. I have not yet seen his "Captain Ahab" but I bet he's like no other before or since!
The only thing better than what I've seen to date would be a live West End performance. I was THIS close, but no joy. Its still high on my list of "100 things to do before I die"... ;o}
