Star Trek legend William Shatner was so terrified during his skydive - he screamed all the way until he landed.

The Canadian actor, 73, leapt out of a plane with his son-in-law and isn't afraid to admit he found the experience terrifying.

Shatner says, "I came out of the airplane and the instructor came down with me. When he landed, he said, 'Are you aware that you screamed all the way down?'

"I said, 'I'm very aware.'

"I have such a fear of heights and falling out of an airplane is the antithesis of natural behaviour.

"I figured that screaming is natural, so I tried to balance the unnatural act of jumping with the natural act of screaming."
