William Shatner Talks Family Values

He states that his parents did not really influence him. He does however say that he supposes his mother gave him a push when he was six of seven. He says he went to a little school in a basement where a couple of women, not unlike his mother were giving so called acting classes. What it gave did was acquaint him with the idea of learning lines and saying them. In some small way he states it got him up on stage and saying those lines and realizing that people would believe him if he put some truth behind the lines and words.

He feels his uprising was standard and states: rather than in the French section of Montreal where there was a great deal of life and ferment, I lived in the west end of the city in a sort of clean, English conservative manner and I went to public school, in the English sense. I went to McGill University in Montreal, so I was living at home for the first 21 years of my life and stuck pretty much to the grindstone. Money was very tight so I had to do it entirely on my own. I was either studying – I was a very poor student – or I was being an actor and that was my life. I didn't do anything spectacular or special and I don't know how all of this career and success came about. He said in a report to theguardian. He seems to take the credit for his own fame and give none to the parents that raised him.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
