I worked with Leonard Nimoy when I first moved out to LA. It was my first print booking, posing as a marble statue for his new Coffee Table Book. Most people don't know he got into acting to make money for his real passion of Photography. He told me he used his famous hand signal in his TV show, which he actually adapted from seeing the Rabbi in his Orthodox Temple in Brooklyn, blessing the congregation with the Hebrew Letter "Shim." He incorporated it into his character when he got older. He interviewed me 3 times, before I booked the job, and went to his house to meet his lovely wife, and was floored when I booked the chance to work with someone I grew up watching!! My father had turned my family into Trekkies, watching every Star Trek episode and movie ever made!!! I am so sad to hear of his passing this morning.
May Mr. Spock always and forever,
"LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!!!!"
RIP Leonard Nimoy xoxoxo
