    R.I.P. Few actors so capture their audience's imagination.

    I remember LONG before his sci-fic stuff, he was a terrifically entertaining member of the cast of the original Mission Impossible TV series. An excellently entertaining actor.

    Nimoy starred in Mission Impossible from 1969 to 1971, which was after Star Trek (1966-1969).

    RIP, Leonard.

    I'll be darned. I was sure it was the other way 'round. Senior moment I guess

    Highly illogical.

    I was just going through his credits at IMDb.
    Wow.
    His first movie role, at the age of 20, was in 1951: Queen for a Day (I remember the TV show, but did not know they had made a movie)
    The oldest role I've seen him in was from 1961: Twilight Zone (TV Series), A Quality of Mercy (I just finished watching the entire series a few weeks ago)

    Lots of fun older pictures of him from around the net.

    This one appears to be from the '58-'60 series "Sea Hunt".

    He was so perfect for the role of Spock! He will be missed!

    Spock as he was meant to be.

    I'd forgotten about that. He was an excellent narrator, and particularly fitting for that show.

    Both alien legends moved back to their worlds in the same year. Live long and na-nu na-nu. Get a check-up A.L.F.!

    I have been a long time fan of Star Trek in its various incarnations, and Spock was always my favourite character, and Nimoy had brought him so vividly to life. He will be dearly missed. My condolences to his family.

    RIP. You have certainly lived long and prospered!

    What a loss.

    But he lived to 83, and left quite a legacy.

    Live long and prosper.

    Peace be upon him.

    Back when I was a child, I was always in a hurry for home from school to watch his movie. Now he left...
    Spock I'm going to miss you, forever.
