Armin Shimerman Q&A:

What’s the nerdiest thing about you?

I like to stay home and read. I’m a fanatic about learning about Elizabethan and Renaissance life, culture, and historical figures.

What character from pop culture do you identify with?

The Penquin.

What are you nostalgic for?

A time when everybody wasn’t fixated on their phones and social platforms. I miss people giving you their full attention and learning to be empathetic. It concerns me that a phone call or a text message is more important than the person you are spending time with.

What inspires you?

Great books with thoughtful language as well as knowledgeable people who can hold your attention in a conversation

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

Well, when I am not acting. I adore teaching and sharing what little I have learned over a lifetime. Of course, teaching is work and I very much admire everyone who has chosen that as their life’s work.

How do you stay sane?

By reading. Also by studiously preparing for what the next day’s challenges may be. Trying to stay ahead of the curve keeps me from wallowing in boredom, depression, and personal failures.
