Patrick Stewart is Writing a Memoir

Star Trek legend Sir Patrick Stewart is writing a memoir, and we’re dying!

The British icon revealed that he was in the middle of shooting Star Trek: Picard when the pandemic shut it down, and now he has the time to reflect on his life and career — in the form of a book, that is.

The untitled book will be filled with stories from his childhood in Yorkshire, England where he experienced poverty and domestic violence, according to a statement from the publisher.

It will also cover his career in Hollywood and his passion for political advocacy and charity work.

“The idea of writing a memoir based on my life and career has been in my mind for several years, but always the demands of work have pushed it into the background,” the actor said in a statement.

“Today there are no demands, nor is there a prediction when there might be. I am caught in the middle of shooting a new series, Star Trek: Picard, and I passionately want to see it through, but in the meantime… what?” he added.

“Well, I have a beautiful study in our house in Los Angeles, sunny and peaceful. I am 80 in a little over two weeks’ time. I have just treated myself to a gorgeous office chair. And… I have the time. But most importantly, I am loving what I am doing, even though I never thought I would or could.”

God, we love you Patrick! We can’t wait to read your beautiful words.
