BIOGRAPHY:

William Shatner OC is a Canadian actor, author, producer, and director. In his seven decades of television, Shatner became a cultural icon for his portrayal of James T. Kirk, captain of the USS Enterprise, in the Star Trek franchise


TRIVIA:
  • Dr. James Kirkland, Ph.D wrote a 1996 "Star Trek" novel titled, "First Frontier". And in his acknowledgments, thanked Capt. Kirk (original series episode "Arena") for inspiration and being his childhood hero.
  • His version of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" was voted as the worst massacre of a 'The Beatles' (qv) song ever in May 2003.
  • Was one of the guests at 'Sandra Bullock' (qv)'s and 'Jesse James (VII)' (qv)' wedding.
  • Wrote and directed a college musical ...."The Red, White and Blue Revue".
  • He had some worries about appearing in the _"Futurama" (1999)_ (qv) episode, "Where No Fan Has Gone Before". He spoke with 'Billy West (II)' (qv), who told Shatner that the cast and crew had nothing but respect for him. He agreed to continue.
  • William Shatner expressed his sadness at not being asked to reprise his iconic role of Captain James T. Kirk for the new "Star Trek" film (2009). In response, Shatner wrote "Star Trek: Academy Collision Course" (with Judith and Garfield Reeves)as his own version of how Kirk and Spock met. In his version of the story, a teen aged Kirk gets into criminal trouble and is given a choice: Go to prison or join Starfleet. He, of course, joins Starfleet and meets Spock. But he does not meet any other major character from the "Star Trek" series. However, the story does tie into the first season episode "The Conscience Of The King" and Kirk meets his Starfleet bully, Finnigan from "Shore Leave".
  • Suffers from tinnitus (ringing in the ears), along with _"Star Trek" (1966)_ (qv) co- star 'Leonard Nimoy' (qv). Nimoy's right ear and Shatner's left ear are affected. Their hearing was apparently damaged during the filming of the episode "Arena" when they were both too close to a special effects explosion.
  • Has 3 daughters, Leslie Carol (born 1958), 'Lisabeth Shatner' (qv)(born 1960) and 'Melanie Shatner' (qv) (born 1964). He and his wife live in Southern California. Also has a 360 acre horse farm in Kentucky.
