Star Trek star Leonard Nimoy dead at 83: US media

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Actor Leonard Nimoy, who won fans worldwide for his generations-spanning role as the pointy-eared half-human half-Vulcan Mr Spock in the Star Trek television and film franchise, died Friday at age 83. Nimoy, who suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, died at his home in Los Angeles. His granddaughter Dani announced the death on his Twitter account. “He was an extraordinary man, husband, grandfather, brother, actor, author – the list goes on – and friend. Thank you for the warm condolences. May you all LLAP. Dani,” she wrote, using the acronym for one of Spock’s most famous sayings – “Live long and prosper.” In his last tweet, posted Monday under his handle @TheRealNimoy, Nimoy himself said: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP” Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015 Read: http://t.co/pw7zYRRlts —...
