William Shatner has cultivated a career spanning over 50 years as an award-winning actor, director, producer, writer, recording artist, and horseman. In 1966, Shatner originated the role of Captain James T. Kirk in the television series "Star Trek," a show that spawned a feature film franchise where Shatner returned as Captain Kirk in seven of the "Star Trek" movies, one of which he directed. He's won Emmys and a Golden Globe for his portrayal of lawyer Denny Crane on both "The Practice" and "Boston Legal." He received four more Emmy nominations as well as other Golden Globe and SAG Award nods.
His love of music inspired him to record the critically acclaimed album "Has Been." William Shatner's book, "Leonard: My Fifty-Year Friendship with a Remarkable Man," appeared on the NY Times Bestseller list, and his newest book, "Spirit of the Horse: A Celebration in Fact and Fable," was released in May 2017. Shatner continues to act, write, produce and direct while still making time to work with charities and further his passion in equestrian sports.
