6. William Shatner is not an avid watcher of the Star Trek series
Yes, it is true and quoted from the man himself. William Shatner has never watched an episode of Star Trek that on television or any of the movies.
According to Shatner, he does not watch anything he appears in – “I do not watch myself” he says. I’m sure the same goes for his classic Priceline commercials too, because those are solid gold performances right there!
On a serious note, he told his daughter Liz via a video blog that he believes he sucks so he doesn’t watch. In Star Trek V while directing himself he would have to watch playback of footage and that even made him uncomfortable. I’m sure many of us can relate when we cringe at listening to a recording of our own voices.
