George Takei Expresses Scepticism Over Sulu Homosexuality | Film News
I’m with Pegg on this one. George Takei, the original actor who played helmsman Sulu in the original Star Trek TV series has expressed his scepticism about the decision to make the character of Sulu in the new movie Star Trek Beyond openly gay. The move was intended to be a doff to the actor’s work for gay rights, Takei responding with concerns over whether it sent a dubious message about whether people can suddenly change sexuality.
“I’m delighted that there’s a gay character, unfortunately, it’s a twisting of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s creation, into which he put so much thought. I think it’s really unfortunate”.
