I came across this interesting little tidbit from Mr. Nimoy’s youth… This was Leonard’s responses to a questionnaire by a fan publication from the 1950’s called “Hi-Lites”, which covered ‘up and coming’ actors and actresses’. This one was from 1953-54. He was happy to respond to Mrs. Hreha’s questions with this gracious note and even supplied a photo!
Early in his career, he’s excited about the avenues opening up to him (Dragnet!) and possibly more so about his interests (“WOMEN!) (This was not long before his marriage to Sandi)
Now don’t get excited — Alas, this is not an interview with Leonard Nimoy, but if I were ever lucky enough to interview him, this is what I’d ask. Some are philosophical, some are totally fan girl…Who knows, maybe he’ll read this and send me a reply! 😉 Get out your pencil, Sir!
You wrote, produced, and and performed the marvelous Vincent; –Do you think that creativity and sanity are linked? That is, is there really is a fine line between sanity and genius and/or that creativity that nurtures and protects our sanity?
We’ve always heard about how teenagers created the youth culture the 1950’s with their rebellious music and style, but you were a teenager in the 1940’s — what was life like for your age group then? Were you all just mini-adults expected to act like your elders, or were you rebellious too?
Any chance that Baffled can be rebooted? I think it would have made an excellent mystery/suspense series. (And I think Jon Hamm would make an excellent Tom Kovack)
What was your favorite guest appearance in a TV series?
What’s your philosophy for a life well lived?
Just a few Star Trek questions that I hope are unique. I don’t know if you’ve seen a lot a fan art, but a lot of it is just saturated with “Spirk” a.k.a.”slash” art which features Kirk and Spock in, well, let’s just say compromising situations. Personally, I don’t care for it, but what is your take on this trend?
