Stewart Suffers Chest Pains

Former Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Patrick Stewart was rushed to the hospital yesterday after suffering chronic chest pains while shooting a new science fiction TV show.

The 64-year-old halted filming of British miniseries Eleventh Hour and asked a crew member to take him to the Manchester Royal Infirmary, after suffering a heart scare. But doctors gave him an electrocardiogram and concluded his heart was healthy, so he returned to the set three hours later.

A spokeswoman for production company Granada TV says, "Patrick is absolutely fine and is back on set working." An insider adds, "Patrick has been working very hard in recent weeks, because the filming schedule is really tight. The director suggested he go for a check-up just in case."

--Best wishes to him. He's an amazing actor. If you haven't seen him do Shakespeare, you should try to catch it on PBS sometime.

1 He is one of my absolute favs. Of course I like him from his Star Trek days but he is such a talented actor capable of pretty much anything.

2 He can do almost anything. It was a treat to see him in a play on London's West End.
