I was saddened to hear the news this evening that icon of science fiction, stage and screen Leonard Nimoy has passed away. He was 83.
Nimoy was of course the legendary Spock from Star Trek, in both the short-lived TV series, the movie franchise as well as the recent re-boots (as future Spock) and was always a charismatic, at times dead-pan funny and always likable presence. He will be very dearly missed by the movie industry, Star Trek fans and many others. My thoughts go out to those closest to him.
