After reportedly filing for divorce from his wife of 18 years, Elizabeth Shatner, William Shatner will soon be a single man. The actor’s new worth, however, will most likely remain the same since they allegedly had a prenup. After gaining even more popularity from playing Captain James T. Kirk in the Star Trek universe, he’s valued at $100 million.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, he even makes $150,000 for every episode on TV that he’s filmed recently. This means he was making a pretty penny when The Big Bang Theory was on the air considering it featured him in one 2019 episode. Since the show ended, he returned to the Canadian crime dramedy Private Eye as Norm Glinski.
Needless to say, Elizabeth — a horse trainer — and William will live a very different lifestyle once their divorce is finalized.
‘Before the Boston Legal actor decided to leave his former lover, it wasn’t the first attempt at marriage for him. He was previously married to Nerine Kidd from 1997 to 1999, Marcy Lafferty from 1973 to 1996 and Gloria Rand from 1956 to 1969. He’s also a father to three kids — Leslie, 61, Lisabeth, 58, and Melanie, 55. Even though William’s love life is in turmoil, he told Closer Weekly in March that he doesn’t ever plan on giving up acting.
“From my point of view,” he said, “I’m grasping opportunities because you never know when it all might stop. Some people have said to me that time runs out for all of us and I should slow down. But is time going to run out any sooner or slower if I don’t do this? In fact, people who slow down — people who retire, to use that word — die. But to me, I’m more alive and more sensual in the full meaning of that word — aware of my senses — now than I ever have been, because of all the things that are going on.”
That’s what we love the most about William. He’s a passionate guy!
