Free download ï PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook å George Takei To the Stars The Autobiography of George Takei Star Trek's Mr Sulu Free read í 100 E US Asian relocation camp In his lifetime he has become an actor a successful businessman a writer and a man deeply involved in politics and the democratic process His story also incl. Like most people I knew George Takei primarily as Mr Sulu the helmsman from the original Star Trek series but reading this autobiography made it clear that he is so much than that And if you love Star Trek this book won t spoil anything for you but will instead enhance your appreciationAs a child Takei was caught up in the anti Japanese paranoia of WWII so although he was born in Los Angeles he spent his younger childhood years in internment camps first in Arkansas and then in one near the CaliforniaOregon border where half the 18000 internees were other childrenHe shares with us his memories of the camps expanded with adult elaborations including explanations of the full dubious meaning behind the so called Loyalty uestionnaire and the thoughtful reasons for answers deemed controversial In those camps he discovered both the wonderful world of movies and an understanding of the fragility of American democracyTakei brings us with him on a journey of a new actor one who didn t want to be cast in stereotypical roles and who sought roles both in television and in the theater He wasn t an overnight success very few are but hard work good fortune and encouragement from his father kept him going unlike many Japanese fathers his wanted Takei to be the best black sheep possible not to force him into a role he didn t wantThere are of course many stories of the actors and directors he worked with and volunteered with from John Wayne and Richard Burton to Jane Fonda and Alec Guinness There are stories from behind the scenes of triumphs and hardships mistakes and setbacks but these were never maudlin or self pitying rather factual and therefore received with impact I was uite surprised at the variety of productions he had been in and where his path had crossed with some of his future Star Trek crewAnd here we come in the last third to the section so eagerly anticipated Star Trek Don t skip over the beginning that s crucial Takei obviously has a great respect for many of his colleagues especially Leonard Nimoy and this reminds me I should rewatch TOS with an eye to the character interactions appreciating the skill of such experienced actors rather than just for the basic plots He is generous with his praise of the others and criticism is straightforward rather than emotional though the implicit contrast between Ricardo Montalban who played Khan and William Shatner was clearThere are plenty of stories from on set admiration and fun as well as conflicts explanations of timing problems when filming schedules changed introductions to new characters such as Walter Kroenig s Chekov the impact of the various directors and studio tricks with timing slots Fox obviously learned from NBC but the growing power of the fan base kept it aliveWe can see how Star Trek changed and inspired popular culture and how its universe changed within the series and then with the movies how the franchise made a slow start before becoming the huge success it is today and the frustrating pendulum swings of the studios before finally settling on what they wanted It s also notable though not mentioned that from TNG onwards all the major characters were featured prominently within the series rather than being centered so firmly on just the captain Takei makes it clear which actors stood firmly for their beliefs supporting the others in the cast and working always to strengthen the show keeping it true to Roddenberry s visionThrough it all he weaves the issues facing Japanese Americans through his life story not pushing an agenda but showing how they affected so many people being forced into the internment camps and then forced out the discrimination they faced the difficulties of so many people trying to find jobs at short notice his first experience with direct racism his understanding of the realities of democracy and citizenship fighting stereotypes and cultural misapprehensions and finally his tireless drive to show that his character Sulu is than just a guy who sits at the helmIt s also clear the deep love and respect he had for his father to whom the book is dedicatedHis father was a gracious honorable and hard working man who served others as block manager in the camps and then with an employment agency afterwards He didn t discourage Takei from testing the acting waters but instead suggested ways with less risk and chance of success resulting in a change of study from architecture to acting Takei followed his father s example serving others as a volunteer and political activist supporting other candidates and eventually running for office himself all while not neglecting his acting career or his fellow actors interests including with the fair and eual screen time reuirement Always he was mindful that when in the public eye whether in office or on screen he represented than just himself and he took the opportunity to shape policy and stand up for his beliefs whenever possibleIt s all very readable and extremely compelling I m not usually one for biographies or memoirs but I found this difficult to put down even for essential sleep Disclaimer I received a free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
