This Sunday, Gates McFadden will join four other Star Trek doctors for a virtual GalaxyCon Live event. TrekMovie took the opportunity to talk with Gates about real cons vs. virtual ones, all the events happening in the world right now (which are very much on her mind), and a few Next Generation episodes, like “Code of Honor” and “The Host.”
This will be your third virtual event with GalaxyCon. Do you think online cons are here to stay?
I have to say, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it. I know that sounds weird. I was quite surprised with how well it works, especially the conference with Brent and LeVar. In a certain way, it was more relaxed, and everybody was really being themselves.
I’ve always loved meeting fans at cons. The fans have kept the show going, and the show is something that has become more meaningful to me every year that passes. I don’t think I was aware of how important the show was when I was first doing it. So when I would meet fans one-on-one virtually—again, it was different. Yes, it was weird to get cut off, but there are probably ways that that can get finessed. Even though there were ones that were short and cut off, I actually felt I was more in a private room with them.
It’s just like doing Cameos. I have really enjoyed doing Cameos and I thought I would really hate them. [laughs] I think there’s a part of myself that comes through more, that’s maybe wackier than I show when I’m at a con. Believe me, if you had asked me a year ago if I thought I’d enjoy that I would have said no. But I really have and that’s that’s not me just trying to put a good spin on it. It’s the truth.
Read the full interview at trekmovie.com and in case you missed they also did another one a few days back in which Gates talks a little bit about Star Trek: Picard.
At some point of my life, I knew I had to keep going to add screencaptures of Star Trek: The Next Generation, so here’s a first batch of a few episodes from season 3 of the show featuring Gates McFadden as Beverly Crusher. Enjoy!
Check it out now in the gallery new scans additions of Star Trek Magazine featuring Gates McFadden as Beverly Crusher on the cover in a scene from “Hollow Pursuits” and then, of course, read her interview.
Hello everyone, it’s been a while I know. I’ve come today with good news and content, as I added to the gallery and in the video vault, screencaptures and two clips of Gates McFadden as Uta Keller in “L.A. Law”
Quality isn’t the best but the show is really old, so I bring to you the best I could get, hope you like it. Enjoy!
Victor Sifuentes returns to Los Angeles to sue the man responsible for his brother’s death and to address his disintegrated relationship with Grace. Meanwhile, Kittredge drags Gwen into a dispute between his client Uta Keller, a fashion designer and her protégé Sergio. Benny’s ward, Sam, visits the office and causes trouble when he’s suspected of stealing things. Also, Alex DePalma is hired as the new junior associate.
incredible to believe but in December we celebrated the 1st anniversary of Gates McFadden Files and normally, after a year, I would change layouts but with everything going crazy since the start of this year, I postponed the event, until now. Because, well, I felt it was time for something different, fresh and colored. My original idea was to dedicate the whole look to Gates’ career, focusing on her roles in movies, tv and theatre but I didn’t have enough images to achieve that and because I did not want it to be only on Star Trek, I decided to mix things a little and make 3 different-yet-similar looks for the main site, the video vault and the photo gallery.
Some thanks are in order. Well first of all, to Gates because she is very inspiring to work on for a designer and sometimes a challenge to match the right coloring to her skin, but I love a good challenge; to our partner-in-Bev @Daily Dose of Gates not only for actively participating into selecting the images but also the immense support and patience she has with me and last, but not least, Edge Design for the category plugin that makes me crazy and want to change icons every other week. And well all of you too, for stopping by, enjoying this adventure with me and always being the kindest people. Thank you and enjoy the new look!
It’s all about Star Trek: Picard this january and this morning I woke up very happy to discover Gates McFadden has embraced the same enthusiasm as we have, though she attended couple events around it that we haven’t.
First, she participated to the imprint ceremony of Sir Patrick Stewart at TCL Chinese Theatre and then she showed up for the series premiere in Hollywood. Amazing. She looked lovely and gorgeous both times, enjoy the HQ photos!
Here we come to the end of this week’s celebration. It’s been fun and a joy to play around it with you, you’re a wonderful audience. I am concluding our final day with last 3 episodes of season 1 from Star Trek: The Next Generation, featuring Gates McFadden. Enjoy!
