The actor’s fans certainly loved his reaction to the outpouring of greetings as his post received nearly 90,000 likes and over 7,000 replies. Although just 90, Shatner already has a vision for his life in the next decade.

Apart from his job, the Canadian native is a horse breeder and rider and a family man.

In an interview with ET, he revealed in ten years, “I want to ride my horses, I want to love my family, I want to make these things I’m doing [...] I’d like to be around when science fiction of today becomes science fact.”

Alongside his birthday celebration, Shatter announced a new partnership with StoryFile, where he will take on the role of brand ambassador to their state-of-the-art artificial intelligence technology.

The Hollywood star will be the first one to use the device and create an interactive video to preserve his legacy for generations to come. According to Shatner, his great-grandchildren and the rest of his line will be able to converse with him still.

But in the meantime, the veteran actor is still full of energy and enjoying his long-time career with several projects about to happen, concluding music, a book club, and more films.

Shatner is most famous for his legendary role as Captain James T. Kirk in the popular franchise, “Star Trek.” Apart from his job, the Canadian native is a horse breeder and rider and a family man.

He shares three beautiful daughters, Leslie, Melanie, and Lisabeth, with his first wife, Gloria Rand. He tied the knot a few more times after, with the latest being with a horse trainer in 2001.
