William Shatner is in Regina this weekend for his second appearance at the Fan Expo. 

Shatner is a busy man and is currently shooting a movie called Senior Moment in Palm Springs, Calif.

Then he's off to Germany to shoot the second season of Better Late than Never — all while working on a new Christmas album.

Q: What can you tell us about your next Christmas album?

 A: If I can get the time and the material together, we're going to have fun with a Christmas album. What it is exactly, I'm not sure.

Q: When do you sleep?

A: Infrequently, restlessly and perturbed.  

Before Shatner leads a celebrity Q&A at the expo, he took some questions from The Morning Edition and his fans on Twitter.

A: I love Dancing with the Stars. I know its been on the air for along time. I just love the drama. I love the people. I'm good friends with some. To me, it's a highly dramatic show.

A: I have no idea what it is, where it is, who's in it, who's doing it. I'm as virginal as he is.

A: I have an intuition that there is more goodness on social media than there is ugliness of which we see so much. I have started a movement to tap into that. 

A: First of all (laughs), octogenarian has an ugly ring to it. We don't want to say "octogenarian." Maybe even "elderly person," but octogenarian sound like eight sides. There's, like, an [octogon] around me. Why am I the coolest? You have made me the coolest. In fact, I'm not cool at all. I'm sort of just like a rocking chair sort of person.

Q: What question do you get asked most often by fans? 

A: If I were to say so, then they would either ask them or not ask them... I love to hear what the audience wants to know. I'll turn the answers into something or other. I don't even want to anticipate what's going to happen. Living in the moment is really the best way to do it.
