some idiot pointed out it was unfair he (Levar Burton) was £15 and Jon Frakes was £20- so they pushed Levar up to £20!
That's just stupid if someone cant see why Frakes is obviously worth more at £20 than Levar Burton at £15 - Ryker is
Picard's "No. 1" after all on the show and
has directed two
of the ST films in addition to Clockstoppers
I'd rank them in this order, with what I would deem a worthy price : -
Patrick Stewart (certainly a rank apart - in this context, he's certainly justified as £25)
Jonathan Frakes (North and South, after Trek mildly successful Director - he did the Librarian too - £20)
Levar Burton (several other high profile roles, film and TV, both before and after Trek - £20)
Brent Spiner (as above - £20)
Marina Sirtis (ok a couple of films before, but nothing really since Trek - £15)
Gates McFadden (Muppets before, nothing since Trek - £15)
Michael Dorn (Jack sh*t before or since - £15 at best)
I guess the logic is, people want cast shots with everyone on them (I've got one too, everyone collected now) - and consequently Dorn 'can' charge £20 because people will pay it. I think it's a bit of a cheek, but if people will pay it, I guess we can't fault him for charging it.
