R.I.P. Leonard "Spock" Nimoy
« on: February 27, 2015, 09:05:15 PM »
Live long and prosper, Spock.

Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.

His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Leonard Nimoy was a wonderful actor and director. So many actors can learn from his experience for how to handle being so closely identified with one character. The universe feels a little dimmer without him.
