Leonard Nimoy, best known for his role as the iconic Mr. Spock of “Star Trek” died on Friday at the age of 83.
His wife confirmed the news to the New York Times, saying the actor died from “end-stage” pulmonary disease. Nimoy announced he had been battling the disease earlier this year and attributed his many years of smoking for the cause.
Don’t smoke. I did. Wish I never had. LLAP
