91-year-old William Shatner sat down with Variety to talk about a new documentary featuring the actor titled You Can Call Me Bill, and said part of the reason he wanted to do the film was that he felt he did not have long to live and wanted to make something for his grandchildren.

“I don’t have long to live, Shatner said. “Whether I keel over as I’m speaking to you or 10 years from now, my time is limited, so that’s very much a factor. I’ve got grandchildren. This documentary is a way of reaching out after I die.”

Shatner, who was born in Montreal, Quebec in 1931, started acting as a child and continued through college. After success in the Canadian theater scene he received his first Broadway role in 1956 in Tamburlaine by Christopher Marlowe and then as the Duke of Gloucester in Henry V, where he doubled up as star Christopher Plummer’s understudy. In a 2011 interview, Plummer said of his friend Shatner that he was an “extraordinary fellow” and remarked how he knew he was “going to be a star.” 

“He didn’t do what I did at all,” Plummer said, remarking on Shatner’s creative choice to distinguish himself from Plummer.

In his interview with Variety, Shatner said when he makes his creative choices “I’m trying to discover something I’ve never said before or to find a way to say something I’ve said before in a different way, so I can explore that truth further.”
