William Shatner: Get a Life!

By Mary Lynn Bushong
1     William (Bill) Shatner was born to Canadian parents of Jewish descent in Montreal, Quebec, on March 22, 1931. He studied economics at McGill University. During summers he performed with the Royal Mount Theater Company and then with the National Repertory Theater in the country's capital after he graduated. He also performed at the acclaimed Stratford Shakespeare Festival of Canada before moving to the U.S. to get more work.
 
2     In 1954, Shatner was cast as "Ranger Bob" on The Canadian Howdy Doody Show, but his first feature film role was as the youngest brother in The Brothers Karamazov (1958) with Yul Brynner.
