Fact of the Day: Comic Book Mirror

While Marvel fans know Patrick Stewart for his role as Charles Xavier in the X-Men films, the actor admitted he was not a comic book reader himself. Before he took the role, he had no idea the character existed. Someone had shown him a cover of an X-Men comic which had Charles Xavier in the art. He said "What am I doing on the front of a comic book?" when he saw it.

  4. I remember him from Excalibur and then, of course, Star Trek. He is a great actor who was great with Shakespearean roles and had a one man show playing Scrooge
