Leonard Nimoy Dies, Aged 83

Leonard Nimoy has passed away.

The actor, best known for his role as Spock in Star Trek, died from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, his wife confirmed to The New York Times.

Nimoy was admitted to hospital and treated earlier this week. The actor revealed last year that the disease was brought on by smoking earlier in his life.

After serving in the U.S. Army in 1953, Nimoy took on the role of Mr Spock in a rejected Star Trek pilot and retained the role when the show was later picked up for a series. Following the success of Trek, Nimoy went on to star in two series of Mission: Impossible and then reprised the Spock character in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, also appearing in sequels Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.

He returned in his most famous role over 20 years later in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness.

Away from Spock, Nimoy also had notable roles in Fringe, Transformers: The Movie and the classic Monorail episode of The Simpsons.

Nimoy was active on Twitter and sent out his final tweet on 23 February, ending it with Spock’s iconic line “Live long and prosper”.

Nimoy is survived by his wife Susan and children Adam and Julie.
