I wasn’t going to post this weekend and I don’t usually write RIP pieces, but the death of Leonard Nimoy yesterday did bring a tear to my eye, and a smile too as many fond memories were evoked.
Although he had a varied career as actor and director, he will forever be Mr Spock for me. I grew up with the half Vulcan, half human who kept Captain Kirk in line, made it alright to be different, yet had such dignity.
The Telegraph has put together a wonderful collection of clips, tweets, tributes and links here, but below is Nimoy’s last tweet… LLAP is, of course the Vulcan greeting ‘Live Long and Prosper’. We’ll miss him.

I was coping till I saw the last tweet…I grew up with Spock too, so I’m feeling pretty sad about it today. 🙁
Following hard on the heels of the death of RSC actor, Alan Howard, this hit me hard. I feel as if major parts of my early life are being ripped away.
Alan Howard too! Sad. 🙁
