John de Lancie, Star Trek‘s “Q”

John de Lancie is an actor best known for his portrayal of “Q” on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager. He’s also appeared on Breaking Bad and The West Wing. In September, he filmed a video for the Openly Secular campaign.

We spoke at the recent American Humanist Association conference in Chicago, where he was receiving the Humanist Arts Award.
