On Friday, 27 February 2015, Leonard Simon Nimoy died at his home in the Bel-Air district of Los Angles. He was aged eighty-three.
His artistic talents included poetry, photography and music and stretched far beyond the United Federation of Planets, but it was as Spock that Leonard became a cultural icon. He created and brought to life one of the most enduring characters of the last half century. A logical and emotionless pointy-eared half-Vulcan, half-human with a signature salute and a customary farewell of: “Live long and prosper.”
After Leonard’s final performance in Star Trek: Into Darkness, he had portrayed the same role on television and in films from 1966 until 2013. For forty-seven years, he was Spock.
This review gives an insight into Leonard Nimoy’s life and career. It is fully illustrated.
