Top 10 Best Gates McFadden Quotes

#10

 

I walked in and was told they had three parts, and I could play any part I wanted. "Okay," I asked, "Which one is the funniest?" Beverly Crusher. I swear to god. Seriously! So I go, "Okay, fine" and I look at the scene and it's a scene from The Naked Now and that's funny because she's kind of drunk and I thought, "This is funny." So, that's about the only funny scene in seven seasons!

When I was young, it was very exciting to have a thought that we can change the world if we all collaborated, but I think it's not just an artist's responsibility as I think we all have responsibilities to different things, whatever we choose in our lives. I feel responsible to my family and also many other things and people in my life. And then how much responsibility do I have for people in Yugoslavia, and people like that? You start to think, how much do I want to do as an individual? How are you going to live your life? I don't have a short philosophical answer. I just know that that thought informs the way I live my life. I don't know exactly how, but it's something that I consider often. What is my responsibility as a citizen, as an actress, as a mother, and on and on?

Some people say there will be another movie, some people say there won't. But certainly the mythology of Star Trek will continue. With or without Dr. Crusher, I'm sure.

In American culture, reality TV is more real than real life.... We are a society of voyeurs.

There was a period of time where I thought it was ... I was almost getting indignant about the fact that both Marina and I had done fencing, I'd done stage combat, karate, aikido, all sorts of things like that, and whenever there was anything to do that was action oriented, it was always the male characters who were getting it, and if there was a fight or something, Beverly was supposed to, like, take a frying pan over someone's head, and I thought, "This is ridiculous!" The female astronauts now know how to do everything that the male astronauts know how to do, and that's the way it needs to be because if something happens to somebody up there you have to be able to take over in a flash any of those positions. So it seemed ludicrous for a while that the women seemed only to have this nurturing thing.

I like the interaction between the performer and the spectator. I think it's a magical interaction ... in theater you never know what's going to happen.

I think it's very important that young people have role models. They seem to write us enormous amounts of letters, young people, and say, "I want to be a doctor like Beverly Crusher, and it's great that you're a mom as well," and all of that. And ... that make's me feel very good. And therefore, I feel responsible to keep pushing the role as much as I can in the direction that ... really shows the potential of what women will be doing, men and women will be doing in space. And I often have felt, "Just write the character as a man, I'll make it female."

Television makes us a witness to such misery.

You know, you guys with the computers get the rumors way before we do. I get asked things at conventions and I'll say, "You're kidding, is that true? That's ridiculous." And I'll go back, and sure enough, it's true, and I had no idea.

As I became a part of the show, I started to understand the vision of Gene Roddenberry. It really has influenced me a lot. It is a very amazing philosophy that he came up with. This whole prime directive, finding ways of living together, the picture it shows of the future. I wish everybody had that philosophy.
