CCON | COMIC CON GERMANY 2019 | Stargast | Jonathan Frakes

Jonathan Frakes, known as Commander Riker from Star Trek: The Next Generation will join us at CCON | COMIC CON GERMANY in Stuttgart.

“I think you never really leave Star Trek!”

There are roles that do not end with a series coming to an end. Jonathan Frakes knows what he’s talking about: his role as Commander William T. Riker in Star Trek: The Next Generation has certainly had a profound impact on his life, making him known as “Number One,” the right-hand man of Jean-Luc Picard. He knew early on that he wanted to be an actor. In the early 70s, he made his bachelor’s degree in theater and pursued his career as an actor.

Like many of his colleagues, he started at the theater, becoming a member of the Impossible Ragtime Theater. Prior to his role as Riker in TNG, Jonathan Frakes played a recurring role in Falcon Crest. And as he said, “Leaving Star Trek behind is not easy!” In addition to The Next Generation, he starred as Riker in three other Star Trek series: Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise. Of course, four Star Trek films followed, the last being Nemesis in 2002. Also apart from Star Trek, Jonathan Frakes is well known as the moderator of the popular X-Factor series, which is still on German television today. After these well-known actor roles, he also worked as a producer and director, among other things, he was instrumental in Roswell and even had some guest appearances in the series: He played himself with a good dose of humor! In the TV series Castle he plays a big fan of the writer Richard Castle, and lets him sign a book at a Star Trek Convention.
