Eddie Paskey appeared in more than half of the episodes of the original Star Trek television series — but you may not know his name, or even recognize his face. Paskey was William Shatner's stand-in, and had bit parts over the years, including playing Lt. Leslie.

NPR's David Greene speaks with Eddie Paskey in anticipation of the new Star Trek movie, which will be released next week.
