1 min read

Sir Patrick Stewart has done well in his career, but there was a price to be paid for his success.

Stewart regrets the time spent away from his family as he was building his career.

“When I got married and I had children, I missed huge amounts of time,” he said. “I would see my kids on Sundays if I was lucky. It was hard on my kids.”

Stewart’s recent movie, Match, which opens next week, features Stewart as a renowned ballet teacher “who sacrificed any semblance of a personal life for a career as a professional dancer.”

The relaxed shooting schedule and proximity to Stewart’s apartment were appreciated by the actor.

Match was filmed ten minutes from Stewart’s home, and the actor enjoyed getting to spend time with his third wife, Sunny Ozell, during the leisurely shoot. “We had our breakfast and our lunch sitting at the kitchen table of [our] apartment,” he said. “I would take my naps or rests whenever I could get them on my bed in the apartment. It was home.”

  1. He is exactly correct; it is so hard and quite the sacrifice but something that they have to do in order to survive in the craft. We went to see “Shatner’s World” last Winter here in New England, and though it was quite the enjoyable show, when you realize that it was a one night production, then off to the next city, and Bill Shatner is not young, you are keenly aware of the concept of “Stop and you die” that actors talk about.
