Star Trek's Doohan Making Final Public Appearances
The 84-year-old actor who played SCOTTY in the cult series attended a Hollywood tribute featuring fellow cast members and approximately 600 guests.
Doohan was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease several months ago and the event at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel served as a fundraiser for an Alzheimer's research foundation.
Last night (29AUG04), he appeared on a stage with the entire surviving cast of the original sci-fi series, including William Shatner and LEONARD NIMOY.
Tomorrow (31AUG04), he will be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The events are expected to be the final public appearances for Doohan, who also suffers from Parkinson's disease and diabetes.30/08/2004 21:07
