George Takei doesn’t shy away from digging into his remarkable career and personal life. Having been a child forced into Japanese-American internment camps, the actor-turned-activist reveals the ways that racism affected him in his early acting career. Even after landing the iconic role of Sulu on “Star Trek,” Takei continued to challenge the status quo. Now, at 76, nine years after coming out of the closet, Takei and his husband, Brad, have become the poster couple for marriage equality. With his sharp eye and wicked sense of humor, he proves why his presence in popular culture remains as fresh and necessary as ever.
