Mr. Spock just turned 82. Leonard Nimoy who will forever be typecast as the Vulcan member of The Enterprise crew just celebrated birthday #82 on March 26. Nimoy was born in Boston to immigrant Russian Orthodox Jewish parents. Although best known as the very popular STAR TREK character, Nimoy also starred in MISSION IMPOSSIBLE for two seasons. He holds a master’s degree in education as well as an honorary doctorate.
Strangely, although Nimoy took some acting classes in college, he failed to complete these studies and instead went on to his advanced degree in education instead. Yet, it is is acting that has made him a real legend.
Here’s to you Mr. Spock. May you live long and prosper….
