Ah Leonard Nimoy! I first saw him in the TV series Fringe. I hadn't been a fan of Star Trek before that, to be honest, I didn't know what Star Trek was, so I didn't really know who he was or what he had been in. He did an amazing performance. But after that, I didn't see him in much.
Until, in 2009, J. J. Abram's Star Trek came out in theaters. Thanks to that movie,I become a Star Trek fan. And thanks to him and Zachary Quinto, Spock was my favorite character. After that I began watching the original Star Trek series. Without Nimoy, the show couldn't have become as much as an icon as it is today.
When Star Trek: Into Darkness was announced, I severely hoped that he would come back, that and I hoped that this movie featured Khan Noonian Singh. Luckily, I was right on both accounts. Of course I had hoped he would be in Star Trek 3, but sadly, that will never happen.
Leonard Nimoy was an amazing actor and a great man. May he rest in peace.

I can not express my sorrow for the loss of such a memorable man. Nimoy's career and works inspired so many to change the world and themselves. I will not say googdbye - only smile through the tears as I know the end to physical life is not the end of life.
R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy. You will be missed.
Rest in Peace Mr.Nimoy :(
