R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy
Leonard Nimoy started on the stage in Boston, and returned to the stage in the 1970s, appearing in Equus on Broadway. His best-known role of course was Mr. Spock in Star Trek on television and in eight of the twelve feature films, as well as on several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. His attention to creating that role, protecting its integrity, and developing it over four decades is unique in modern acting, with multiple lessons for actors in all media. The character he created transcended entertainment to become a contemporary archetype, one of the few mythological figures of our age.
Leonard Nimoy was buried today in Los Angeles. May he rest in peace. His work lives on, into the future.
