Star Trek actor William Shatner would accept a post no less than a Prime Minister when it comes to leading his native country Canada.

The 77-year-old, known for his famous portrayal of the character Kirk in the hit series, spoke of his political ambitions in a recent letter to a fan after being offered to think about the Governor General role.

“My intention is to be Prime Minister of Canada, not Governor General, which is mainly a ceremonial position,” the Daily Express quoted him as saying.

“As Prime Minister I can lead Canada into even greater exploits,” he added.
