Who is being interviewed in this 1965 clip?
• The voice belongs to actor, writer and pop culture icon William Shatner. The television show he's discussing in this clip, For the People, lasted only one season. The following year, Shatner was cast in the defining role of his career: Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek. • While Star Trek did not do well during its initial three year run from 1966-1969, it became a cult classic in re-runs, and Shatner reprised his role as Captain Kirk in several films. Although the role has defined him over the years, Shatner's five-decade career includes almost 200 roles in film and television. He starred in his own series, cop drama T.J. Hooker in the 1980s, and has received critical acclaim for his recurring role in The Practice and Boston Legal, winning Emmy Awards in 2004 and 2005.
• Shatner has also penned several books of science fiction and non-fiction, and recorded a number albums and songs for soundtracks. His most recent record, Has Been (2004), produced by Ben Folds and featuring guest performances by Joe Jackson, Henry Rollins and Lemon Jelly, was well received.
• Shatner has a star on the Hollywood Walk of fame and in 2000 he was inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame.

FamilyShatner has been married four times. His first marriage was to Gloria Rand, from 1956 to 1969. His second marriage — his longest thus far — lasted 21 years and was to Marcy Lafferty; the couple was married in 1973 and divorced in 1994. His third marriage was to Nerine Kidd-Shatner, from 1997 until her death in 1999.

On August 9, 1999, Shatner returned home around 10 p.m. to discover Nerine's body at the bottom of their back yard swimming pool. She was 40 years old. An autopsy detected alcohol and Valium in her blood, but the coroner ruled the cause of her death as an accidental drowning. The LAPD ruled out foul play and the case was closed. Speaking to the press shortly after his wife's death, a clearly shaken and emotional Shatner said that she "meant everything" to him and called her his "beautiful soulmate." [38] Shatner urged the public to support Friendly House, a non-profit organization that helps women re-establish themselves in the community after suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction.[39] He later told Larry King in an interview that "...my wife, whom I loved dearly and who loved me, was suffering with a disease that we don’t like to talk about, alcoholism. And she met a tragic ending because of it."[38] In his new 2008 book Up Till Now: The Autobiography, Shatner discusses how Leonard Nimoy helped take Nerine for treatment of her alcoholism. Shatner writes in an excerpt to his book:

Leonard Nimoy's personal experience of alcoholism now came to play a central role in my life and it helped us bond together in a way I never could have imagined in the early days of Star Trek. After Nerine [Kidd] and I had been to dinner with Leonard and Susan Nimoy one evening, Leonard called and said: "Bill, you know she's an alcoholic?" I said I did. I married Nerine in 1997, against the advice of many and my own good sense. But I thought she would give up alcohol for me. We had a celebration in Pasadena, and Leonard was my best man. I woke up about eight o'clock the next morning and Nerine was drunk. She was in rehab for 30 days three different times. Twice she almost drank herself to death. Leonard took Nerine to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, but she did not want to quit.[40]

In 2000, a Reuters story reported that Shatner was planning to write and direct The Shiva Club, a dark comedy about the grieving process inspired by his wife's death.[41] Shatner's 2004 album Has Been included a spoken word piece titled "What Have You Done" that describes his anguish upon discovering his wife's body in the pool.

Shatner's fourth and current wife is Elizabeth Martin, whom he married in 2001. The couple came together through their interest in horses shortly after they were both widowed. Shatner has three daughters, Leslie Carol (b. 1958), Lisabeth Mary (b. 1960), and Melanie (b. 1964), from his marriage to Rand. Melanie had a brief career as an actress and is now the proprietor of Dari, an upscale women's clothing boutique. She is married to actor Joel Gretsch, with whom she has two daughters, Kaya and Willow.
