Frank Sinatra’s Obsession With Star Trek Revealed By Patrick Stewart

Did you know that the Chairman of the Board, Frank Sinatra, was a huge fan of ‘Star Trek’? You heard it right! The legendary crooner was a Trekkie, and no one other than Sir Patrick Stewart himself has revealed this delightful tidbit during a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Now, if you’re not familiar with Patrick Stewart, he played the iconic role of Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ series, as well as reprising his role in the recent CBS All Access show ‘Star Trek: Picard.’ Over the years, ‘Star Trek’ has amassed a vast fanbase, with many famous names among them. But this recent revelation about Sinatra being an ardent fan might just top the list of unexpected celebrity Trekkies.

According to Stewart, he got to know about Sinatra’s admiration for the show through his hairdresser, who also happened to be the hairdresser for Sinatra’s wife. The hairdresser would often travel to Palm Springs to meet her clients, and one day she spilled the beans about Ol’ Blue Eyes being a dedicated Star Trek viewer.

Stewart shared that his hairdresser told him Sinatra would watch every single episode and absolutely loved the show. This revelation just goes to show that the legendary singer had quite a diverse taste in entertainment, with ‘Star Trek’ sitting right up there with his other interests.

Here is how the actor revealed Sinatra’s admiration for the show:

“I learned several years ago that one of our biggest fans who never missed a show was Frank Sinatra.”

When asked how he learned that, Stewart replied:

“Because my hairdresser was also Frank’s wife’s hairdresser, and she would go out to Palm Springs. My hairdresser came one day and said, ‘I was about to go down to see my client.’ Well, we said who it was, and then she told us who it was. She said that he watches every single show that we make and loves every moment of it.”

It’s always fun to learn about the unexpected interests of our favorite celebrities, and this one just adds another fascinating layer to the already impressive legacy of both Sinatra and ‘Star Trek.’ So, the next time you’re binge-watching some ‘Star Trek’ episodes, just remember that you’re in good company with Ol’ Blue Eyes himself!
