The long feud between star trek Actors George Takei and William Shatner continue to live long and prosperous lives.
Earlier this month, Captain Kirk actor Shatner claimed that Takei used his name in a new “advertisement” interview.
Takei – who played Hikaru Sulu in the original star trek series – has now gone so far as to claim that no one in the cast got along with “Prima Donna” Shatner.
Speak with The guard before his appearance in the British production of the musical loyaltyTakei was asked if there was camaraderie aboard the Starship Enterprise.
“Yes. Yes. YES,” Takei replied. “Except for one who was a prima donna.”
“But the rest of us shared a great camaraderie,” he continued. “One of the gifts from star trek was not only long life, but colleagues who became lasting friends.
When asked later in the interview if any of the cast members got along with Shatner, Takei added, “No, none of us.”
“He was selfish. He enjoyed being the center of attention. He wanted everyone to bow to him.”
Last year, Takei poked fun at Shatner’s trip into space, saying he was being used as a 90-year-old “guinea pig” to assess the effects of space on an “unfit” specimen.
In his interview with The times, Shatner said: “George never stopped redacting my name. These people are bitter and bitter. I have no more patience with them. Why believe people who are consumed by envy and hate?”
In his new collection of essays walk boldlyShatner wrote about the breakdown of his friendship with many of his star trek Co-stars like Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock, and the fact that Uhura actress Nichelle Nichols told him his co-stars found him “cold and arrogant.”
“I was horrified to learn this and ashamed that I hadn’t noticed,” Shatner wrote.
