Now, recently, you have been talking
about Jean-Luc Picard – he’s coming back, is this right? APPLAUSE AND CHEERING I know! So where is he coming back?
Is it on telly? Where’s he coming back to?!
Bermondsey. Is it a movie, is it… He’s doing his shopping. Yeah, it’s… I still can’t quite fully take it
on board, because I’m not only reviving Jean-Luc Picard, but
I’m also co-executive producer… Hello!
..which I’ve never done before. It sounds quite easy. LAUGHTER Well, it’s got the word

the other one can do all the work. Well, there are several of us, yeah. We are reviving a…
We are reviving a Picard story. It’s exactly 19 years in the future,
which was how time has passed since the last time I put
on my spacesuit. Has really been that long?
19? Wow. It has been, yeah. Well, for
the television series, yeah. And I heard you talking
in an interview about when you went for… I think it was after you were cast. They had quite a different
vision of Jean-Luc Picard, that he wasn’t going to be the way
he turned out to be. Well, yeah. They thought he should
be French. For one thing. And did you do it French? I did a recording, a taping,
which must be somewhere in the vaults of Paramount Pictures, where we experimented
with a French accent. Would you like to hear a sample
of it? Oh, yes, go on! I’d love to hear a sample. OK. EXAGGERATED FRENCH ACCENT: Space… LAUGHTER ..ze final frontiere! It is as a voyage of
the Starship Enterpreez! They didn’t use it! It was very good.
