He told People magazine back in 2015 about how he used to put it in his contracts to fly home on weekends to be with his family.
Speaking about his time on Star Trek: Enterprise in 2001, he said “I had it put in my contract that I would be done every Wednesday at six so I could be home for dinner.
“And I made time to coach my sons’ soccer and baseball teams.”
He also opened up about his relationship with his wife Field, adding: “It takes energy and focus.
“We work hard to stay present in the relationship. Chelsea is amazingly present and has taught me a lot about relationships and spirituality.
