Sir Patrick Stewart, most famous for his portrayal of Captain Jean Luc Picard in ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’, is 73 years old and is still considered a handsome and attractive man. His bald head is his signature look along with his British accent.
However, the famous actor has confessed that being bald was not a matter of choice but of heredity.
He recalls losing all of his hair at the age of 19. At the time he believed that no woman would ever be interested in him and that a big part of his life was over.
When he first started balding, the young Patrick Stewart sported a combover hairstyle or wore toupées in an attempt to hide the problem. Unfortunately, soon all his hair was gone.
Stewart’s hair loss was caused by a genetic condition known as male pattern baldness. His son, Daniel Stewart, who inherited the condition is bald, too.
Anyway, being bald didn’t stop Sir Patrick Stewart from playing one of the most famous roles in TV, being knighted by the Queen of England and having several marriages, children and a whole line of female followers, not to mention the Treckies who adore him.
