Co-stars, friends, and fans have flocked to Twitter to honor Leonard Nimoy, most remembered for his portrayal of Spock in the Star Trek franchise. Nimoy died at his home in Los Angeles on Friday. He was 83 years old.
The talented actor was nominated for four Emmys throughout the course of his long career, three of which were for his work on Star Trek. Nimoy also directed, stepping behind the camera for both Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home.
“I loved him like a brother. We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love.” -William Shatner http://t.co/U8ZN98tVYp

I just saw that Leonard Nimoy has passed on. We didn’t know each other well, but I’m glad I spent the time with him I did. A wonderful man.

Leonard Nimoy brought us one of the greatest, noblest characters in the history of American storytelling. Someone find the Genesis planet.
