Regrets, he's had a few:
Evil as he may be on screen, even McDowell remembers that last one with a tinge of wistfulness.
"Poor old Captain Kirk," he said in a telephone interview from California with The Canadian Press. "It was sad, really. Honestly, the producers should have given him a much better sendoff than they did."
Kirk, played by Canadian William Shatner, met his end at the hands of Dr. Tolian Soran, McDowell's evil mad scientist character, in 1994's "Star Trek: Generations."
After iconic performances in Clockwork Orange and If, Malcolm McDowell will likely be remembered for shooting William Shatner in the back. What a lousy movie and what a way to kill off one of sci-fi's greatest legends. Damn you Brannon Braga!
