A Famous Face
Sir Patrick Stewart is one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood, and while the Trekkies out there will forever consider this man to be Captain Piccard, there are others who have been entranced by his work within the Royal Shakespeare Company. As a member for almost two decades, Stewart has lived and breathed sonnets and plays for much of his life. It seems as though he now wants to give back some of what he’s learned.
The First Sonnet
March 22nd, 2020 — Patrick decided to share a video of him reciting Shakespeare’s famous sonnet 116. Fans were immediately struck by the talent and the voice of the man they had seen on their screen for so many years, and they inundated his social media profile with compliments. According to the actor, the response took him by surprise. To follow-up on this initial tweet, Stewart provided his fans with a little story.
A Sonnet a Day
In a heartfelt tweet, Patrick noted that when he was a child back in the ’40s, his mother used to tell him that “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” So, the actor wanted to change this up slightly and adapt that phrase to, “A sonnet a day keeps the doctor away.” He has since been sharing them every single day since, and he’s even had some visitors along the way — including his cat, Glenn!
