Heather Skye asked Patrick Stewart a question:


“Besides acting, what are you most proud of that you have done in your life (that you are willing to share with us)?”


And here is Patrick Stewart’s response: 

Heather Skye writes about this in her blog:

Let me tell you a thing, about an amazing man named Patrick Stewart 

And here are her comments to the video on YouTube:

Published on 29 May 2013
This was my question to Sir Patrick Stewart at Comicpalooza 2013. I wanted to thank Patrick Stewart for his speech at Amnesty International it personally help me put a name to the abuse, sexual abuse in my case, I had experienced in the past. He responded very passionately and the last thing I thought I would get at was a heartfelt hug.

When he embraced me he told me “You never have to go through that again, you’re safe now”. I just kept thanking him.

I hope everyone who needs help in abusive or violent situations has the courage to do so. There are people willing and ready to help you. There are hotline numbers a little farther down.
