This Day in Pop Culture for March 26

Leonard Nimoy was born on March 26, 1931.

Happy Birthday Spock

Although Nimoy has had a steady acting career, the role he is most famous for is the iconic role of Spock in the Star Trek television series and its’ subsequent movies. Nimoy had been interested in acting since he was a child but it wasn’t until he was a young adult that he traveled to the West Coast (by selling vacuum cleaners) to pursue his dream. After a guest starring role in the TV show, The Lieutenant, Gene Roddenberry was so impressed, that he thought Nimoy would make the perfect Dr. Spock for his new series, Star Trek. Nimoy passed away from this universe on February 27, 2015.
