Top 10 Best LeVar Burton Quotes

#10

 

I believe fantasy/role play is a very healthy form of creative expression. We don't do enough of it as adults. So you won't find me knocking folks who create characters for themselves and dress up on the weekend.

Wearing [the visor] robs me of acting. It's robs me of how we, as human beings, communicate. Communication is done primarily through the eyes. We can't see Geordi's eyes, so it is like we are cut off from one part of him. That's something I would like to address. Besides, I would think that in the 24th century, there has to be something technologically better than what Geordi's got now.

People always ask me, Could you see out of that thing? And the answer is, no, I couldn't. It was always very funny to me because when the actor puts the visor on 85 to 90 percent of my vision was taken away, yet I'm playing a guy who sees more than everyone else around him. So that's just God's cruel little joke.

I'm enormously proud of the fact that Star Trek has really not just sparked an interest, but encouraged a few generations of people to go into the sciences.

Technobabble brings with it its own challenge. Because it really doesn't mean anything. Well I mean it does to the technically and scientifically proficient, but it really didn't mean much to me, because I'm not an engineer, I just played one on TV. The methodology that I found most successful was to really spit it out as fast as I possibly could. Giving the illusion that I knew what I was talking about when, in fact, I really didn't.

When I was young, I used to fantasize about being famous. I even practiced my signature ... for autographs. I wanted to be rich and famous. I asked for it. I created it. So now that it's here, I really can't say it sucks.

I don't believe Roots could've happened ten years earlier in America, nor ten years later for that matter. Socially, the timing was perfect in every respect. The Civil Rights Movement had succeeded to the point where America was accustomed to accepting Black people as equal citizens in this society. Then came the Vietnam era which forced us to take an unvarnished look at ourselves and our politics. By the time the late seventies rolled around, I think we were finally ready to deal with the issue of slavery and how its legacy has impact even to this day.

II read a lot of science fiction books when I was a kid. And very few of them had heroes of colour in the pages of those novels. There were some, but they were the exceptions and so that's why Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future was really important to me growing up because it said when the future comes, there will be people like you who are vital and important to that mission of going out there and boldly exploring.

What I love about Star Trek is that it's about inclusion. It's about diversity and inclusion. Star Trek says there is an infinite number of life forms that exist out there in – in the cosmos and they all have value. Every single one of them.

You know that phrase, love your neighbor as yourself? My hope, as we head towards the millenium, is that we need to take the message to the next level. My neighbor and myself are the same.
