As some of you know, I’m a huge Star Trek fan so I guess you can say that I’m a Trekkie. Have been ever since I was a child. I was obsessed with the original Star Trek series when I was a kid and I still love that show today. I also loved all of the 6 original Star Trek films that Leonard starred in as Spock: “Star Trek: The Motion Picture”, “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”, “Star Trek III: The Search For Spock”, “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home”, “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country” and Leonard once again reprised his role as Spock for JJ Abrams, “Star Trek” film. He also had a cameo in “Star Trek Into Darkness”.
While most people remember Leonard as an actor who played the legendary Spock, he was more than just that. Leonard was a multi-talented man. He did it all in the entertainment business. You name it, he did it. He was an actor, film director, screenwriter, poet, author, singer/musician and photographer. He did release his own music albums and published his own books over the years.
As a film director, he did direct other films besides “Star Trek III” and “Star Trek IV” in which he was the director of those two movies. He was also the director of the comedy film, “Three Men and a Baby” in which I’m sure most of us seen.
Leonard passed away at his Bel Air home, he was 83 years old.
