Brent Spiner doing Sir Patrick Stewart doing Sir Ian McKellen Impressions

Brent Spiner — beloved by millions for his tender portrayal of ‘Lieutenant Commander Data’ in the “Star Trek: The Next Generation” franchise — performs his imfamous and rediculously funny impression of Sir Patrick Stewart (and, apparently, Sir Ian McKellen) in front of delighted sci-fi fans at his 2018 Ottawa ComicCon panel.

Brent Jay Spiner (born February 2nd, 1949) is an American actor, comedian, and singer best known for his portrayal of the android ‘Lieutenant Commander Data’ in the television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and four subsequent films. In 1997, he won the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of ‘Data’ in “Star Trek: First Contact,” and was nominated in the same category for portraying ‘Dr. Brackish Okun’ in “Independence Day” — a role he reprised in “Independence Day: Resurgence.” He has also enjoyed a career in the theatre and as a musician.
