Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Simon Nimoy, born to Ukrainian Jewish immigrants - began his long career in acting at the age of 8, by appearing in various plays at the local community theatre in his hometown of Boston, MA. He continued to appear in amateur productions until the age of 18, while also attending Boston University on a dramatic scholarship. When he decided to pursue acting more seriously, he dropped out of school and moved to California hoping to find more opportunities. Only one year after arriving there, he was casted in his first leading role in the film Kid Monk Baroni.

After two years in the military he was still appearing in various bitparts, in films, and on television - one of which would eventually lead him to pop-culture immortality. His big break came when Gene Roddenberry spotted Leonard in an episode of The Lieutenant (also created by Roddenberry) - Gene offered him a leading role in a new science fiction series he was creating. A role that he though was a perfect fit - Mr. Spock, a half-Vulcan/half-human science officer. Leonard accepted, not knowing that he would eventually make television history.

When Star Trek was cancelled in 1969, Leonard went on to appear in many noted roles in film and television.

Leonard Nimoy Quotes
Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.

(To the Washington Post, on 'Shekhina') It's a photographic essay on the subject of the Shekhina, which is the feminine presence of God, the feminine aspect of divinity. This is not some figure that is a foggy mist in a cloud somewhere. I have depicted her as being a flesh-and-blood woman.

(To about his choice of obese photographic subjects)
They are interested in fat liberation. Their self-esteem is strong. They will tell you that too many people suffer because the body they live in is not the body you find in the fashion magazines.

(on William Shatner on Trek) Bill was very passionate about the work. Unfortunately, Bill was passionate about everything.

The miracle is this: the more we share the more we have.

Spock is definitely one of my best friends. When I put on those ears, it's not like just another day. When I become Spock, that day becomes something special.
