Born 26 March 1931 – Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015), a revered actor and director who left an indelible mark on science fiction fandom, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on March 26, 1931. Though he had a successful and varied career, Nimoy will forever be best known for his portrayal of the half-Vulcan, half-human Spock in the iconic “Star Trek” franchise.

Nimoy’s portrayal of Spock, with his pointed ears, Vulcan salute, and signature stoicism, transcended the boundaries of television. The character became a cultural phenomenon, inspiring generations of fans with his portrayal of logic and reason in the face of human emotion. Nimoy originated the role in the original “Star Trek” series that ran from 1966 to 1969 and later reprised it for several feature films, animated series, and even guest appearances on other shows. Beyond “Star Trek,” Nimoy enjoyed a successful career as a director, photographer, and author. However, his portrayal of Spock cemented his place in pop culture history. He passed away on February 27, 2015, in Los Angeles, California, but his legacy as the enigmatic Mr. Spock lives on.
