RiP Leonard Nimoy....

This actually upset me a lot more than I anticipated.... he was such a *HUGE* character on Star Trek. Not only in the original but he's mentioned in all subsequent spin offs and a huge part of Star Trek history.....

He was a kind generous man in real life and he'll be sadly missed.

It is so sad, and as you said Mow Mow he was a very generous kind man in real life. In the words of Spock he lived long and prospered. He will be missed hugely

Great actor, loving father, honorary grandfather!

His life was, in Spock's words, fascinating.

Pure class act. I enjoyed watching him in Fringe, too.

Something I didn't know:
Quote:
Nimoy directed the biggest box-office hit of 1987, "Three Men and a Baby."
He struggled with being typecast.

Quote:
He titled a 1975 memoir "I Am Not Spock." Though the book was less a rejection of the character than what he went through to develop him, fans took umbrage.

Twenty years later, he called another memoir "I Am Spock."
But in the end, was on good terms with "Spock."

Quote:
"I am not Spock," he wrote. "But given the choice, if I had to be someone else, I would be Spock. If someone said, 'You can have the choice of being any other TV character ever played,' I would choose Spock. I like him. I admire him. I respect him."

Very sad to hear the news. I saw him filming in town a few years ago and he was so patient with all the fans around. Signing autographs, taking pictures at 11 pm, pure class act!
