1980 DeForest Kelly Interview

 One got the feeling from just watching the original series that "Dr. McCoy" was the most relatable human on the show; the person that represented the "everyman" from our time period, and the actor DeForest Kelly was the one we could be most comfortable around. DeForest Kelley was that kind of person in real-life, as all the interviews bear out. Here's a good one from Starlog issue #38, published in September of 1980.

Bonus: a candid closeup of De from a movie magazine that came out during the series run.

Bonus #2: a great shot of Bill giving archery lessons to De during the series.
"Okay, De, let's try to hit Leonard in the behind and bring him down a couple of notches."

Dr McCoy always makes me laugh with his catch phrases. I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer and then theres, he's dead Jim. Yeah, Bones is the best.
