Buzz Aldrin, BOB, Jonathan Frakes discussed on Sci-Fi Talk

Sci-Fi Talk


Call it a video where somebody could talk back and and I would tell you whether you did it right The technology wasn't there but the idea was and but I couldn't do any of it because So they flew mark in to sit next to me and I. He would tell me how to do the word patterned and I would do the word and he said no bob that that's not right. You have to spend more. So it was very covid nineteen not not good. The Way Klingons talk, and so we would definitely have to wear masks but he said he was very patient with me and sometimes after. Say Word like three or four times times before I got the actual accent and was able to turn to camera and he was literally two feet away from. The camera was two feet away from me. So he would tell me I would try and then I do it took care her and this went on for two day I think it took us two days to film it. It was a lot of fun and I enjoyed but mark the night sorta became very close in and it was great. Got We got to know each other. Could years we've gotten to know each other better? Well, what's funny is I played that cd-rom and I went to the language lab work our Peters on the on the holiday. And and So me being little younger and more impatient. I said I don't WanNa. Do the thing let me go right to the ship and I'm on the Klingon Vertebrae and I I do something or say something that's not wrong and Garan would appear essentially cursed me out in Klingon every. Hugh should've been cursed. That's right. That's right. That was a lot of fun to do that I have to admit. Is this the CD ROM called Klingon start going on? Yeah. Yes. Yeah. I was I. Think I was on that as I played the old Klingon didn't have much to say, Oh yeah. Yeah. But. I. Think that is absolutely was and. When I when I read for that Jonathan frakes directed it and when I read for that I, it came to a sequence in learning, learning the reading the script overnight before I went into audition. I, there was a sequence it was in Klingon three or four or five lines. And I said, this is ridiculous I. Have No idea. Pronounce these words had I don't know what they mean screw that I'll use a foreign language I'll use what could I French French sounds like French. Spanish German. Get closer. Oh I know. Latin. and. The because my mother was a Latin teacher I took too much Latin through L. through high school and college. But I learned a memorize a long long long long time ago. Nineteen seventy-one. A thing called CICERO's oration against Caroline. I went right into it. I was saying war. If you see that is quote talk maybe country in the putty notre on. A. So it went on for a while and when I was done, frakes said you know of never had anybody auditioning in in Latin before. Laughing at me and he said, but I love Latin and he said I there's nothing written for you in this in this cd-rom but I'm going to ask the writers to write you in. So. That's how I got that first job on Bob's. CD Rom called EGA and he's on the cover and as it's always been in fact much later like thirty years ago I got a chance to introduce at a at a thing in Los Angeles somebody at forget James Conway or Doug Conway. Can't remember who had asked me to if I could introduce Buzz Aldrin who was in the audience. To. Bring, him up. And I said what's Everybody knows exactly what I know it I have no self. You know. So I, said, I gotta work up something so I said I said like introduce gentlemen now. Whom you all know is Buzz Aldrin and abundant buzzword. How did you get that name buzz? I said Oh then I remembered all, it's nineteen, sixty nine. Oh. Of course, you and Neil Armstrong were on your way. And I could see it now does. God. Deal. The Moon. He. Last Sega's good. But. Yeah No, I don't know what? I'm sorry about Charge Funny Star Funny story the thing. I'm sorry. You'RE GONNA. Say Something No. I was GONNA. Say You introduced is. No did you introduce me first and then Bob? Yes? That that's the way it never goes that way. Really it always goes Gal Ron and March. The and I said it's it's like it's like Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Its. Arms. Shade that way. So he said that were absolutely that's great. The funny thing about both of you is your first appearance on star. Trek you're not playing KLINGONS. Oh I wasn't I didn't know you were. I my first job was in the holiday I was a gangster. In the big goodbye with when they went into into the thirties and forties. Is that when you were dealer it now I know I was a gangster I was I. It wasn't.
