In reply to: Dies at 33 's message, "Jon Paul Steuer aka Jonny P. Jewels, Musician and former child star of "Grace Under Fire" and "Star Trek: The Next Generation" on Wednesday, January 03, 06:47:11am

In 1990, Steuer was cast as Alexander Rozhenko in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Reunion". Although a number of young children auditioned for the role, Steuer was the only child able to sit still for the three hours it took for the make-up department to cast his Klingon facial prosthetics. The ability to be still for a long period of time won him the part. The producers of the series sought him out a year later to reprise the role.

So the producers cast actor Brian Bonsall, who was more than two years older, as Alexander. Steuer later said he was very upset at being recast
