‘STAR TREK’ ACTOR LEONARD NIMOY HAS DIED
Star Trek star Leonard Nimoy died on Friday (February 27th) at the age of 83.
His wife confirmed the news with the New York Times saying that his death was caused by end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was hospitalized earlier in the week.
Throughout his illness, Leonard kept in touch with fans through Twitter and his last tweet written on Monday (February 23rd) read, “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP” LLAP stands for his famous Star Trek line “Live Long and Prosper.”
Leonard played Spock for 40 years — most recently in 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness. He also directed several Star Trek films as well as 3 Men And A Baby.
Leonard is survived by his wife, two children from his first marriage, his stepson and grandchildren.
