William Shatner refuses to go on space flight due to flying fear

shatner William Shatner refused to go on Sir Richard Branson’s space flight because he’s scared of flying.

British business tycoon invited the actor, who played Captain James T. Kirk in the TV series Star Trek, to join him and other celebrities on their space trip, but Shatner wasn’t interested. Sir Richard said: ”He actually said he’s frightened of airline travel — which is slightly disillusioning. Captain Kirk is scared of flying.”

Shatner, on the other hand, has a bit different explanation. ”He wanted me to go up and pay for it and I said, ‘Hey, you pay me and I’ll go. I’ll risk my life for a large sum of money’. But he didn’t pick me up on my offer,” the actor said.
