Lisabeth's Head (02-19)
INSIDE THE HEAD OF LISABETH SHATNER
 This is short and sweet, but it has some value. I wanted to see a bit of the mind of William Shatner's daughter. She's very interesting and if you check out her web sites below, you will see just why. She is a celeb by her own rights and let's get to know a tiny bit about her.
William Shakespeare had a daughter, too.
In fact, his daughter had a daughter herself, named Elizabeth.
Not quite Lisabeth, but close.
 What was it like growing up?
 I get this question a lot, and it's hard to answer, because growing up with my Dad seemed normal to me. When I was really young, I didn't realize he worked at something different than most Dads did. As I got older, of course I figured out he wasn't your ordinary Dad. I guess it was the phasers and the space ship that really did it. I didn't see my neighbors with either one of those.

 Why has Star Trek been around for so long?
 I think Star Trek was great entertainment, which is the main reason it's been around for so long. It also deals with some universal issues which, unfortunately, still seem to be here. So I think people still like to watch it because it still has relevance to their lives. Also, all those guys it tight pants didn't hurt, either.
 Do fans matter?
 Of course fans matter! Fans are the most important thing. Without their support, Star Trek would have died out a long time ago. I also don't think an actor like my dad can have such a long and successful career as he has been fortunate enough to have without fan support. People will just simply switch the channel if they don't like you.
 What makes you angry?
 Cruelty makes me angry.
 Has your life changed since Sept. 11th?
 Undoubtedly yes. I was always proud of my country, but now not a day goes by now where I don't thank God that I am an American. Also, I think about the families that lost their loved ones. The image I can't get out of my head is where the people were holding hands, jumping out of the towers.
 What are your hopes for the future?
 For myself, I hope that the website is a continual success, and that people enjoy the "Ruby" webisode which I have written. It's an interactive murder mystery series, it's a lot of fun and definitely something new for people to try out.
 Have you ever considered acting or directing?
 I have really always been interested in writing, but I never say no to a new experience. I learned that from my Dad.
 Tell us about your artwork.
 I started sculpting a few years ago, and I just really love it. It's a place where I go to stop thinking, just get my hands dirty, literally. I love doing figurative pieces, as I find the human body fascinating. I'd also like to start sculpting animals. They have such personalities of their own.
 What would you tell other children of actors?
 Probably that having a sense of humor really helps.
