Though William Shatner is best known for his role in Boston Legal and Star Trek, the Canadian actor is also known as an author, producer, screenwriter, director, and singer. Shatner was born on March 22, 1931, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and he belongs to a conservative Jewish family.
Here, we will tell you more about William Shatner’s age, height, daughter, spouse, and net worth in 2022.
Shatner’s acting career began with theater. He played many roles at the Stratford Festival in 1954.
When William tried his luck in film and television, he became one of the regular faces of the Canadian film and TV industry.
And today, he’s one of the last surviving people from the original Star Trek TV series. If we talk about his personal life, he has three children.
Shatner has had four marriages, but all ended in divorce.
The Star Trek star got many awards for his talents in various fields. In 2020 William Shatner’s name was included in the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame in Celebrity Wing as an inductee.
However, that event was withheld due to the Covid-19 situation.
Well, William began his acting career at an early age, because he knew what he wanted to do early on in life.
Shatner was born on March 22, 1931. Therefore he turned 91 on March 22, 2022.
But you might agree with us that he doesn’t seem like he is in his 90s. He’s still pretty young compared to his age.
This year after he turned 91, Shatner gave an interview to CBC Radio, and he said something about his age.
He said, “It’s a disgusting number. I mean, I don’t like 90. So when I heard that 90 was coming up, I thought, ‘What the heck is that?’ I remember 90 way back when I was in Canada, and I thought ‘90! People don’t live till 90.’ And here I am.”
He also talked about his loneliness and fear of death in that interview. William also mentioned his cancer diagnosis.
He said, “If you had asked me, ‘Did you ever have a cancer scare?’ I would have said no because it’s so frightening. I went out of my mind.”
William Shatner is of medium height. At his young age, he was 5ft 9 inches which means 175.3 cm but as you all know when people become older, their height decreases.
Therefore, at present, William Shatner’s height is 5ft 7½ inches which means 171.5 cm, and this is the correct height of the Canadian actor.
Once, an Italian shoemaker named DiFabrizio said,
“I give you one more. I made William Shatner 3 inches taller in the show [star trek]”. It might be the possible reason why Shatner looked much taller than his actual height.
The 91-year-old actor has three children, and all are daughters named Leslie, Lisabeth, and Melanie Shatner. He has no son. The age gap between these three sisters isn’t that much.
Leslie is the eldest daughter of William and Gloria Rand. She was born on August 31, 1958, and is 63 years old right now.
She will turn 64 in August 2022. Once Leslie appeared in a role in a single episode of Star Trek: The Original Series. At present, she is a mother of two children.
Lisabeth is the second and middle daughter of William. She was born on June 6, 1961. In June 2021, she turns 61. Lisabeth also followed in her father’s footsteps and pursued acting.
At present, she’s living in West Hollywood, California. In 2005 she became the wife of Andy Clement, and they are happily living together.
Well, here’s the younger one, Melanie. She chose an acting career like her other family members. She was born on August 1, 1964, which means she is 57 years old.
At present, she’s living in Los Angeles. In 1999 Melanie chose Joel Gretsch as her life partner and got married.
Among these three daughters, only Leslie and Lisabeth got the opportunity to work with their father. Though the roles were small, they would be a lifetime memory for them.
And William had three daughters with Gloria Rand. While William had been working in Star Trek: The Original Series, he left Gloria.
After that, in March 1969, Gloria divorced Shatner.
Four years after the first divorce, the ironic actor married March Lafferty. March is the daughter of producer Perry Lafferty.
That marriage lasted for 24 years. This pair had no children.
Nerine Kidd was Shatner’s third spouse. He married her in 1997, but unfortunately, Kidd died in 1999.
Shatner found Nerine’s dead body in the swimming pool of his house on August 9, 1999. When Kidd died, she was only 40 years old, and the reason for her death was alcohol and Valium (diazepam) in her blood.
Shelter fell in love again with Elizabeth Anderson Martin, and he married her in 2001.
Elizabeth is a songwriter, and she co-wrote the song “Together” for the album Has Been. Fans expected that his 4th marriage would have lasted until his death.
Unfortunately, it didn’t happen. In 2019 Shatner himself filed a divorce, and he got it in January 2020. So right now, he’s all alone.
It’s estimated that the present net worth of the 91-year-old Canadian actor is $160 million in 2022. Shatner started work as an actor in films and TV series from an early age of his life.
Therefore, most of his earnings came from acting. Moreover, he earned a decent amount of money from commercials.
In addition, he was the co-author of the popular TV series TekWar and Star Trek. William made a lot of money from these two shows.
On the other hand, ten years back, Shatner invested his earning in the share market. These shares are now worth around $25 million.
Some people claimed that William earned $600 million from Priceline.com shares.
But there is no evidence for this claim. William Shatner Tweeted regarding this matter, he wrote on Twitter, “Someone stupid said a stupid thing about me making $600M. It is not so. Relatives are coming out of the woodwork. Too bad it never happened.”
He makes $150,000 per episode of the TV series, and he has worked since the early 1950s. So that’s why he’s considered one of the highest-paid actors.
