Leonard Nimoy, 1931-2015

Leonard Nimoy has Boldly Gone

Sad news for all of us today. Leonard Nimoy, the galaxy’s favourite pointy-eared Vulcan, passed away at age 83.

Though he’ll be greatly missed, his presence can still be felt in original Star Trek TV series, the six films featuring the original cast, the Star Trek reboot (2009), the original Mission: Impossible TV series, as well as memorable episodes of The Simpsons, The Twilight Zone, and The Outer Limits. Two performances of his which are less often mentioned, but are among my personal favourites, are as Dr. David Kibner in the 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and his recurring role as Dr. William Bell in Fringe. In addition to acting, his vast career included work as an author, director, and photographer.

Many of his celebrity friends, colleagues, and admirers have voiced their sorrow at his passing. Some of their comments have been collected in an article on the Toronto Star website.
