About DeForest Kelley:
Jackson DeForest Kelley was an American actor, screenwriter, poet and singer known for his roles in Westerns and as Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy of the USS Enterprise in the television and film series Star Trek.
Star Trek is perhaps the best thing that ever happened to me, in a career sense.
The most important influence in my childhood was my father.
I have been exposed to a great amount of temptation throughout the course of my career.
I have no aspiration whatsoever to be the next great leading man.
I had fallen in love with California.
You see, I was the son of a baptist minister.
My father started me singing in church.
I ran around with the other youngsters, hunting, fishing and raising tadpoles and all the rest.
It was a perfectly average well- adjusted childhood, not a bit unlike that of millions of other individuals.
I have deep feelings for the welfare and comfort of others.
I refuse to be crude and selfish in any way.
I have considered myself a mature actor.
I am still seeking to become firmly established as an actor.
Star Trek has brought so much of what I want within my grasp.
I once aged 90 years old in one episode.
What I truly miss the most is having sufficient time to do all the things that need to be done around the house and for our friends.
My ambition is peace and perfection.
I m up at 5 in the morning and in bed by 10 in the evening.
