Is William Shatner married?

Who are William Shatner’s former wives?

Though today Shatner is worth a whopping $100million, he was a relatively unknown theatre performer when he walked down the aisle for the first time.

In 1956, the then-25-year-old Shatner wed fellow actress Gloria Rand.

They proceeded to have 3 children together: Leslie,63, Lisabeth 60, and Melanie, 57.

Rand would later watch her husband rise to television fame, with the iconic show Star Trek, in which Shatner played the lead, premiering in 1966.

Their marriage ended the same year that the show did in 1969.

The rising Hollywood star waited four years before tying the knot again. Marcy Lafferty became his second wife in 1973, and would go on to act alongside him in the 1979 film, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and the ’80s police drama TV show, T.J. Hooker.

His longest relationship, the two stayed married for 23 years before finalizing their divorce in 1996.

Shatner’s shortest, and most tragic, union came next.

He married aspiring actress Nerine Kidd, whom he met on the set of Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, in a 1997 Pasadena ceremony.

In 1999, Nerine was found at the bottom of their swimming pool. The cause of death was an accidental drowning, according to her autopsy revealing alcohol and Valium in her blood.
