In a recent interview with Alibi.com, Star Trek: The Next Generation star LeVar Burton reveals that he's truly a Trek fan at heart. When asked if fans can be intense, he responded; "They can. I feel like I not only understand them, but I'm one of them. So I get it. I totally get it."
LeVar also revealed that his visor was literally attached to his head; "It's hard to get a clear sense of what I'm talking about unless you see the visual. It's sufficient to say there was pressure applied through a mechanism of flanges and screws that put pressure on my temples. So after about half an hour I'd get a headache." He continued; "People always ask me, Could you see out of that thing? And the answer is, no, I couldn't. It was always very funny to me because when the actor puts the visor on 85 to 90 percent of my vision was taken away, yet I'm playing a guy who sees more than everyone else around him. So that's just God's cruel little joke."CONTINUE READING >>
