Leonard Nimoy retires from Star Trek

DesScorp (410532) writes | about 4 years ago

Sci-Fi 3

DesScorp writes "Leonard Nimoy is hanging up his Vulcan ears for good and retiring from the role of Spock in the Star Trek franchise, reports the Daily Mail. Nimoy apparently wants to pass the torch: "Nimoy, one of the most recognisable and best loved characters from the sci-fi series that began in 1966, announced that he wanted to ‘get off the stage’ and give young actor Zachary Quinto a clear run at the role he took over for last year’s Star Trek movie". Nimoy, at age 79, appears to be retiring from acting, period. Nimoy has, in recent years, undertaken another career in photography, as well as other pursuits, but seems to be preparing to retire from the public eye altogether."

Hope he enjoys his retirement (1)

Spock as a character was probably done since the last movie, but if he isn't doing anymore public events, sci fi conventions and pop culture in general will miss him.
