“Leonard Nimoy dazzled us and millions of other sci-fi fans with his iconic portrayal of Mr. Spock, the logic-driven, half-Vulcan first officer in Star Trek. While he maintained this genre-defining role throughout nearly 50 years of movies and spinoff series, Nimoy was always a captivating presence – whether he was starring in shows like Mission: Impossible and Fringe or doing voiceovers for movies and games. He was also a talented director (Star Trek III, Star Trek IV, Three Men and a Baby). When he wasn’t acting or behind the camera, Nimoy was a prolific poet and musician; and alongside his wife, Susan, he generously supported other artists with grants from The Nimoy Foundation.”
