I really admired Leonard Nimoy. He was an artist, he was a humanist, he was a traveler, and he stood up for what he believed in.

Honestly, we can’t believe Leonard Nimoy has died. What an incredible career. From the original Star Trek to Fringe to the Star Trek reboots, Leonard’s career onscreen encompassed all forms. His final tweet is a testament to the incredible human being he was.
Our thoughts go out to Leonard’s family and friends during this difficult time.
