Sir Patrick Stewart says his dream role is to play Romeo

   Mar 19, 5:33 pm

London, Mar 19, (ANI): Sir Patrick Stewart has said that he doesn't consider himself too old to play his dream role of the famous lover Romeo.

The 71-year-old is best known for his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in ' Star Trek'.

"You're looking at an actor ready to play Romeo but it ain't gonna happen," the Daily Express quoted him as saying at a fan event he hosted at the Criterion Theatre, London.

Stewart, who first joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1966, believes he owes his livelihood to the playwright.

"If Shakespeare hadn't existed I would not have had a career...He's given me an awful lot of good jobs," he added.

The actor is currently playing the Bard himself in Edward Bond's play Bingo at the Young Vic on London's South Bank.

"There's a rumour Al Pacino might be coming to see it...I keep looking out for him," he said. (ANI)
