My Weekly Spock: Leonard and George

As George Takei’s labor of love Allegiance goes to Broadway this fall, it seemed a great time to remember  what good friend George was with Leonard. I found some wonderful pictures, not just from their TOS days, but though ST:IV and in 2012 when Leonard went to see the pre-Broadway version of Allegiance.  I’m so glad Leonard got to see his friend George’s wonderful musical, and I hope I’ll see it too!  The final picture was taken in 2014.  I’m sure George misses his friend.  ❤

Also note the wonderful picture here on the ST:IV set, where the little boy (Sulu’s great-great-great-great… grandfather in the story) is shyly standing in front of Leonard.    Sorry that scene of Sulu and his distant relative was never filmed, but the idea of it was was sweet.

    Hi, Therese,
    I hope that you are feeling well. I love these pictures. I thought George as Sulu was very cute before I became infatuated with Spock. George Takei is a gift to the universe.

  2. The scene wasn’t “cut in the final print;” it was never filmed because the little boy cried and wouldn’t act for them.

    Thanks for the photos; these are fun.

  3. Too bad too, it would have made a nice backstory for Sulu.
