Leonard Nimoy

Nimoy at the 2011 Phoenix Comicon Leonard Simon Nimoy (; March 26, 1931 – February 27, 2015) was an American actor, film director, photographer, author, singer, and songwriter. He was known for playing Spock in the ''Star Trek'' franchise, a character he portrayed in television and film from a pilot episode shot in late 1964 to his final film performance in 2013.

Nimoy began his career in his early twenties, teaching acting classes in Hollywood and making minor film and television appearances through the 1950s, as well as playing the title role in ''Kid Monk Baroni''. Foreshadowing his fame as a semi-alien, he played Narab, one of three Martian invaders, in the 1952 movie serial ''Zombies of the Stratosphere''. From 1959 to 1962 he appeared in four episodes of ''Wagon Train''.

In December 1964, he made his first appearance in the rejected ''Star Trek'' pilot "The Cage", and went on to play the character of Spock until the end of the production run in early 1969, followed by eight feature films and guest appearances in the various spin-off series. The character has had a significant cultural impact and earned Nimoy three Emmy Award nominations. ''TV Guide'' named Spock one of the 50 greatest TV characters. After the original ''Star Trek'' series, Nimoy starred in ''Mission: Impossible'' for two seasons, hosted the documentary series ''In Search of...'', and made several well-received stage appearances.

Nimoy's public profile as Spock was so strong that both of his autobiographies, ''I Am Not Spock'' (1975) and ''I Am Spock'' (1995), were written from the viewpoint of sharing his existence with the character. In 2015 an asteroid was named 4864 Nimoy in his honor.

The documentaries ''For the Love of Spock'' and ''Remembering Leonard Nimoy'' were produced by his son and daughter respectively; covering his life, career and later illness. Provided by Wikipedia
