Leonard Nimoy was known to all as the infamous Mr Spock, even if his name didn’t ring any bells a sharp prompt of “Spock” always brings this face into anybody’s memory.
For me he is the one true Mr Spock, nobody has, can or will ever play the part better than Leonard Nimoy, although I’m sure many will try in the years to come.
Whilst living a long and full life on screen as Spock he was also known for many other things, although I suspect there are many people who know little of his achievements. It’s a sad fact that when an actor plays a part so well he becomes that part and people become blind to the real person beyond.
He also acted in many films and TV series over the years as well as getting in some voice acting, directing, producing and writing. An extraordinarily talented man, he not only filled our screens but also our hearts. The torrent of RIP messages filling Facebook and Twitter yesterday showed just how many hearts he touched during his career.
Mr Nimoy’s final tweet was one of beauty; “A Life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP”
Rest in peace Mr Nimoy, we will never forget you.
