Leonard Nimoy


Age: 83

Summary: actor who won fame and fans with his portrayal of logic-bound half-human, half-Vulcan alien first officer Spock on the starship Enterprise in the original 1960's Star Trek TV series and subsequent movies, who had long struggled with a love-hate relationship with the role but ultimately came to accept its part in his life, and who had other roles during a lenghty cateer in TV, film, and theater (he directed successful movies, wrote books, composed poetry, published photographs, and recorded music), but he will be forever linked to Spock.
