The 80 year old actor, Leonard Nimoy, attended his last “Star Trek” convention in Chicago, for the celebration of the “Star Trek – 45th Anniversary”. Earlier this year, Leonard announced he is retiring from acting. What better ways to make it official at a Star Trek convention, right? Leonard gave a speech to the fans for about an hour and ended the speech by saying his famous catchphrase, “Live long and prosper”, then giving his famous Spock hand signal.
Read the full story, here.
While most people know Leonard as Spock, he has done other things in his career other than the Spock role. He is a film director himself, a book author, and he’s even had a short music career of his own.
As a big Star Trek junkie myself, I wish I could have been at that Star Trek convention to see Leonard’s speech. He is a very talented and hard working man, he always got my respect. It’s understandable why he wants to retire from everything, since he’s getting old.
I wonder how much longer, William Shatner is going to keep working for his career? The Shat will have to hang it up at some point as well because he is getting close to Leonard’s age.
Thanks for everything, Leonard!
