Last September, during a Q&A session at Rose City Comic Con, Burton revealed that one of the things that has kept the cast members bond so strong over the years stems from their ability to make each other laugh.

“The thing with him Next Generation Cast – and at the beginning someone asked me what made us who we are. And I think one of those things was that we tend to make each other laugh, I mean, more than anyone else in our respective lives. There’s just something there… it’s like being with your best friends from high school. Only now it’s more than 40 years later… it’s like 50 years later and every time we get together it’s like no time has passed. We’re just a little grayer and a little slower, but we still make each other laugh. And it’s just wonderful to be together.”
