Happy birthday to Sir Patrick Stewart. The English actor has done it all. He brought a newfound respect to the Star Trek series as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. There aren’t many actors who can balance a long-running role in a comic book franchise (the X-Men film series) alongside a prolific stage career with the Royal Shakespeare Company. And Stewart just wrapped a critically acclaimed Broadway run of Waiting for Godotwith dear friend Ian McKellen. Since Stewart joined Twitter we’ve been treated to a number of fabulous photos that reveal the star’s sillier side — and his heartfelt relationship with McKellen and wife Sunny Ozell. In honor of the esteemed actor’s birthday, we’re celebrating with a series of pics that showcase Stewart at his most adorable.
