Since Last Friday was William Shatner’s Birthday, and tomorrow is Leonard Nimoy’s Birthday, it’s a good time to reflect on the nearly 50-year old friendship between these two actors. Hard to believe they weren’t always this chummy, but nice to know that the real life counterparts of Kirk and Spock are just as close as their fictional characters. When a dying Spock said to Kirk in ST:II “I have been and always will be your friend” it was from the heart. Their off screen friendship made their on-screen chemistry all the more believable; a joy we’ve had for nearly a 1/2 century. Happy Birthday, Guys!
