Very sad day for the entire SciFant Universe. We will miss you old friend… RIP
Leonard Nimoy, the actor and science fiction icon that portrayed Spock in the long-running Star Trek franchise, passed away Friday morning at his home in Los Angeles, California, his wife Susan Nimoy confirmed to the New York Times. He was 83. Nimoy died of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; earlier in the week, the actor was taken to the hospital with severe chest pains.
“I loved him like a brother. We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love,” his longtime co-star William Shatner tweeted following news of Nimoy’s death. George Takei, who played Sulu on Star Trek, wrote on Facebook, “Today, the world lost a great man, and I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars, Leonard. You taught us to ‘Live Long And Prosper,’ and you indeed did, friend. I shall miss you in so many, many ways.”
