(WatchDogReport.org) – Actor William Shatner was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1931. He’s best known for playing James Tiberius Kirk, Captain of the starship USS Enterprise, on TV’s “Star Trek” and in several subsequent movies. The talented actor went on to play many successful roles throughout his career and recently traveled to actual space at age 90 on a Blue Origin Rocket.
On March 9, Variety interviewed Shatner about an upcoming documentary regarding his life entitled “You Can Call Me Bill.” The actor said he turned down many offers to do documentaries in the past but changed his mind because his “time is limited.” Shatner didn’t indicate that he has any specific health problems but simply admitted that he is, in fact, mortal. He said whether he was to “keel over” during the interview or a decade from now — it’s coming. The actor said he wanted to leave something of himself behind for his family when he goes.

Shatner said he doesn’t want to just take his decades of knowledge, thoughts, and ideas with him when he dies because it would “all disappear.” He said that happens a lot with older and wiser people, and he seemed to think that was a shame. Instead of losing all of those thoughts, he decided to share them with the world and, most of all, his family. During the interview, the actor spoke candidly about death, his choice to skip fellow “Star Trek” actor Leonard Nimoy’s funeral, the roles he played over the years, and his time in space.
According to Variety, Shatner’s documentary will touch on the actor’s most prominent roles during his career, the actors who inspired him the most, and his fondness for nature. The release date of the film is March 16. Less than a week later, on March 22, the Canadian thespian will turn 92 years old.
