In February 1976 five members of England's Royal Shakespeare Company visited UC Santa Cruz for three days. They offered workshops to students in English literature and theater arts, and performed programs for the Santa Cruz community. The actors were Bernard Lloyd, Charles Keating, Lisa Harrow, Tony Church and Patrick Stewart. Although he continues his brilliant stage career, Stewart is also famous now for his roles as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994), and Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series (2000- ).
