Logic Dictates It’s Leonard Nimoy’s Birthday
Can you believe that both William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy (Stark Trek’s Captain Kirk and Spock) have birthdays that are just four days apart? On March 22nd, Shatner celebrated his 81st birthday, and today, Leonard Nimoy celebrates his 81st.
The uncanny thing is that in Star Trek, Kirk and Spock are best friends, and in real life, Shatner and Nimoy are best friends too. And both are 81 years old. As Spock would say, “Fascinating”. As I’ve indicated in the past, I’m a Trekker but haven’t seen Leonard Nimoy at a convention, as yet.
While Shatner continues to be seen everywhere, Nimoy has retired from acting, but is very active with his photography. Thank you Leonard Nimoy for 46 years of great Stark Trek memories. Happy birthday, and “Live long and prosper”.
Here’s a video clip of Leonard Nimoy as Spock in “Star Trek VI – The Undiscovered Country”, the last film where the entire orginal “classic cast” appeared together.
