Actor George Takei, widely known for his role as Sulu on the 1960s-era television series "Star Trek," has described William Shatner, who played the character Captain Kirk on the show, as "a cantankerous old man."

Asked whether the onscreen camaraderie of the characters on the show was a reality on the set, Takei answered in the affirmative: "Yes. Yes. YES," he said, according to the Guardian. "Except for one, who was a prima donna." The outlet said that Takei meant Shatner. "But the rest of us shared a great camaraderie. One of the gifts from 'Star Trek' was not just longevity but colleagues that became lasting friends," Takei said.
