Legendary Actor Leonard Nimoy, Who Played Mr Spock On ‘Star Trek,’ Dies Aged 83

Leonard Nimoy

Beloved actor, film director, poet, singer and photographer Leonard Nimoy has passed away at age 83 due to complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy died this morning at his Bel Air home, as confirmed by his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy. Nimoy had a long career as both an actor and director. However, he was best known for his portrayal of the half-human, half-Vulcan character Spock in the original ‘Star Trek’ series, and in multiple film, television and video game sequels. He played the iconic character since 1966 and was the only actor from the original series to return for J.J. Abrams’ recent film versions.

Nimoy’s final tweet was exceptionally poignant: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory.” He signed off with “LLAP” – a reference to his character’s famous catchphrase, “Live long and prosper”.
