LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: 'Star Trek' fame William Shatner was recently spotted chomping down some earthly delights at a famed Italian restaurant in the Bel Air locality! The actor, who is known for his spirited portrayal as Captain Kirk in the 'Star Trek' series and the movie that followed a decade later, is someone who lives a low-key life, especially now in his twilight years- so this appearance comes as a delight for his fans.
Shatner was seen at an Italian restaurant called Fabrocini’s Beverly Glen, chowing down on a tasty early dinner. He had reportedly been joined by his daughter Melanie, who is the youngest of his daughters- the other two being Leslie and Lisabeth, all three by his first wife Gloria Rand.
Shatner, 91, wore a grey undershirt that was engulfed in a loose-fitting black jacket. He paired the shirt with a pair of dark blue pants and was seen with a black pouch as well. He also had a pair of black classic sunglasses that hung on his t-shirt. He looked visibly uncomfortable having unflattering pictures of him eating taken of him by the photographers, but indulged them when he was leaving the restaurant anyway.
Shatner’s low-key profile is something that most of his fans have come to respect. That being said, his most recent major interview was with The Guardian in May 2021, where he spoke about his experiences with animals- riding horses and swimming with sharks, to be specific. “I ride a lot of horses and I’m into the bewilderment of the world, so I open my heart and head into the curiosity of how things work. I’m a competitive rider in an equine skill called reining. I don’t know if you know it, but it’s very athletic and cowboyish.”
He also spoke of his experience on the Discovery Channel’s annual 'Shark Week'. “So they asked me to do it this year, and last month I went to the Bahamas to swim with sharks. Eighteen-foot tiger sharks! They put a 5ft shark in my lap! This will all be on TV,” he said.
As far as Shatner's personal life goes, he has famously been married four times, with him being single right now. His first marriage with Gloria Rand happened in 1956 and went on for 13 years- they had three children during this time. Shatner was then married to Perry Lafferty between 1973 to 1996- this marriage is known for being his longest. His third marriage had a tragic end with his wife Nerine Kidd accidentally drowning in their home swimming pool after battling an alcohol addiction. They were married for two years. His most recent marriage to Elisabeth Anderson Martin was in 2001 and ended in 2020 after Shatner filed for divorce a year prior.
