We are deeply saddened to report that beloved actor Leonard Nimoy has passed away at the age of 83. Nimoy is best known for his role as “Spock” in the “Star Trek” television series.

Nimoy’s wife confirmed that the actor had died in their Los Angeles area home. Nimoy was hospitalized early this month for shortness of breath, but was later released. He had announced late last year that he was suffering from COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) due to being a smoker for many years.

The role of “Spock” transported Nimoy to super stardom and he was often a fixture at many “Star Trek” conventions and events throughout the country. “Star Trek” the series was canceled by the network after only three season, but to this day has an incredible cult following and “Spock” is truly one of the most beloved characters.

Nimoy went on to direct two “Star Trek” films and made an appearance in the recent J.J. Abrams reboot of the film franchise. A little known fact is that Nimoy also directed the comedy film “Three Men And A Baby” and was the narrator for the History Channel series “Ancient Mystery” from 1995 to 2003.  He has written two autobiographies, as well as, a book of poetry.

Our sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of Leonard Nimoy during this very difficult time!
