Sir Patrick Stewart burst into an impromptu Shakespeare performance on Friday, while on stage during the Lucca 2019 Comics and Games festival.

Stewart is reprising his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in CBS' Star Trek: Picard.

While promoting the new series, Stewart told a packed audience at the festival In Tuscany that the 19th century Teatro del Giglio venue had inspired him to recite some of the English playwright's work.

Stewart then proceeded to recite a monologue from A Midsummer Night's Dream.
