Gene and Jonathan
Jonathan Frakes got his directing start on "Star Trek: TNG." Here he is on set with Gene during the filming of one of the fifth season episodes Jonathan directed. No longer the nervous actor I first met after his audition (see Log Entry 15), he honed his skills as a director so well that Paramount entrusted him with a number of multi-million dollar "TNG" motion pictures. Way to go, Jonathan! Must be something about Leos born on August 19; Gene, Jonathan, and a certain President named Clinton all share the same birthday! (see Log Entry 16)
