BIOGRAPHY:

Leonard Simon Nimoy (March 26, 1931 ~ February 27, 2015) was an American actor, film director, photographer, author, poet, singer and songwriter. He was known for his role as Mr. Spock of the Star Trek franchise.

Born in the West End of Boston, Massachusetts, the son of Jewish immigrants from Iziaslav, Soviet Union (now Ukraine). His parents left Iziaslav separately—his father first walking over the border into Poland—and reunited in the United States. His mother, Dora (née Spinner), was a homemaker, and his father, Max Nimoy, owned a barbershop in the Mattapan section of Boston. He had an elder brother, Melvin.

Nimoy has be acting in community theaters since age eight, Nimoy didn't make his Hollywood debut he was 20, a bit part in Queen for a Day (1951) and another as a ballplayer in the perennial Rhubarb (1951). After two years in army he was still getting small, often uncredited parts - an army telex operator in Them! (1954), for example - but his part as Narab, a Martian finally friendly to Earth, in the closing scene in the corny Republic serial Zombies of the Stratosphere (1952), somewhat foreshadowed the role which would make him a household name--Mr. Spock, the half-human/half-Vulcan science officer of Star Trek (1966) one of TV's all-time most successful series. His performance won him three Emmy nominations and launched his career as a writer and director, notably of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986), the story of a humpback whale rescue that proved the most successful of the Star Trek movies.

Stage credits have included Fiddler on the Roof, Oliver, Camelot, and Equus. He has hosted the well-known TV series In Search of... (1976) and Ancient Mysteries (1996), authored several volumes of poetry and guest-starred on two episodes of The Simpsons (1989). He recently played Mustafa Mond in NBC's telling of Brave New World (1998).
