“He"s brilliant, charming, truthful, funny and utterly delightful," the Daily Express quoted Stewart as saying. And while William Shatner, 78, was not happy that director J Abrams" 2009 version failed to include even a cameo of him in his original role, Stewart has no such reservations.
“I loved it, it was a very, very odd experience to be in the cinema watching a new Star Trek movie that I wasn"t in," Stewart, who took his grandchildren to the film, said. “With the exception of Leonard Nimoy I didn"t know any of the cast but it"s still Star Trek. I got a great kick out of it," he added.
