This is a really wonderful interview with Leonard Nimoy talking about growing up in the West End of Boston. ❤ I especially like when he describes losing his accent and getting Sea Hunt work from Lloyd Bridges, and when he discusses how he identified with Spock. From 2014.
I got this gorgeous 8×10 of Spock at the Briefing Room computer from eBay last month. He’s pensive but delightfully intense!
Last year, the first season of the Carol Burnett Show became available for the first time and we were finally able to answer the question, “What was Mr. Spock doing on Carol Burnett?” The answer is here, and a pretty goofy one too! Enjoy!
I came across this beautiful candid of Leonard taken in 1970! Lovely! Thanks to Monica Eugenia Reinoso for finding this! I’m guessing it was at an award ceremony; probably the Emmys. ❤
I’ve been seeing a trend lately on social media with Photoshopped pictures of celebrities side-hugging their younger versions of themselves, so naturally I had to make one with Leonard!
I’ll be doing the whole cast within the next few weeks; stay tuned!
As I write this, I just realized that it was 41 years ago on this day when I first met Leonard in Elmira! Today is also my sister’s birthday; Happy Birthday, Sis! ❤
(And thanks for your patience, I’ve been busy with my subbing job at the local Elementary School!)
What better way to start the week than with a swinging 60’s Leonard?
I bought this beautiful candid photo on eBay. Leonard is wearing a groovy deep red Nehru jacket as he visits back stage at a performance of Macbeth. This was taken almost 50 years ago on January 12, 1969!
I loved the picture and that gentle smile so much, I made a black and white copy too, to see more detail. Leonard was one cool, cultured dude!
