Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner refuse to talk about Star TrekMay 12th, 2009 - 5:45 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 12 (ANI): It seems that Star Trek stars Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner are still bitter about being left out of the latest film franchise.
Although Nimoy appears in a cameo role in the Next Generation films, and has remained good friends with Shanter, both actors refuse to talk about Trek.
“Bill and I have spent some time together, we have dinner periodically, and frankly, it’s a subject that we avoid,” Contactmusic quoted Nimoy as telling Los Angeles Times,
“It’s not a fun subject right now. And I sympathise with him (Shatner) because I was left out of the Next Generation films. It is what it is.
“In the Next Generation movies, I did not appear and Kirk was killed. It was as though someone was trying to create a dividing line between the original, classic series and the New Generation crew. I was out and Bill was dead.
“I assumed that was it, it’s over. I didn’t feel great about it, but I was OK with it. I’ve had my run, and I had a lot of other interesting things I wanted to do. I didn’t look back,” he added. (ANI)
