A painter friend of mine, who became a little famous for his paintings, once told me “I’ll paint you a picture, I’ll paint your house, I’ll paint your car”. He was indeed a painter. This is the way I feel about Leonard Nimoy. Star Trek was usually on at 4 after I got home from school. I’m sure I know all the episodes by heart.
Just to show you how not seriously Leonard Nimoy took himself, even in fame, he did things like this:
It’s nice that Nimoy got to make his living being an actor. Invasion of the Body Snatchers is still one of my favorite movies. He could play Spock or not. He did a lot of voice acting. This was a working man doing his craft and he seemed to accomplish that with considerable charm.
I am going to miss Leonard Nimoy.
