Oh how I love me some Edgar Allan Poe. He’s always been one of my favorite authors since I was a kid, and last Halloween, I spent the day in Poe’s cellar (no, seriously, I did, in his home in Philadelphia). Therefore, anything Poe gets my immediate attention, which is why I thought I’d point out a new video that has actor John de Lancie performing Poe’s famous poem “The Raven.”
Check out the 9-minute video here below.
What makes this video even cooler is that de Lancie happens to be an alum of Star Trek — he played the omnipotent Q on TV’s Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as a few other Trek series. Did I mention I’m obsessed with Star Trek? Well, cuz, I am.
The video, which was produced by de Lancie, is the first in the QMx Masters Series video series created by collectibles company Quantum Mechanix.
Of the video series, QM said, “Masters Series distills performance down to its purest form: a single camera, a microphone, the actor and you. It’s an intense, mesmerizing experience you won’t want to miss.”
