The actor continued, saying, “Let me tell you something. You remember when Star Trek ended, and Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner got all those star trek movies? They were very successful, and those guys were older.”
“You didn’t care that they were older. You loved them,” Ward explained. Of course, he’s not wrong. Many of those Trekkies had grown up with Nimoy and Shatner, a fact that helped them overlook the actors’ aging visages and embrace their characters for what they were.
