LeVar Burton reveals the weirdest part about being on the show. In a 2012 interview, actor LeVar Burton expressed his enjoyment of working on the TV show The Big Bang Theory. He particularly enjoyed catching up with his former Star Trek co-star Wil Wheaton.
However, he found it awkward when the wardrobe department asked him to bring his own clothes from home for authenticity, but then decided that they were not suitable for the character he was playing - himself. Despite this, Burton appreciated the opportunity to play himself on screen, as it allowed him to be exactly who he is in real life.
