|I Love Sci-Fi/Fantasy Because...|
...of Leonard Nimoy.
Before I begin, let me just state for the record that anyone claiming to be a fan of science fiction, but not a fan of Leonard Nimoy, is a heretic and should be subjected to the Vulcan nerve pinch immediately. Just sayin'.
He made his role as Spock on Star Trek one of most recognized and loved science fiction characters ever created.
This actor has one of the most distinctive voices in the industry. Scan his list of credits on IMDB and notice how many credits appear where only his voice was featured--including The Big Bang Theory. (Took them long enough!)
Having just turned eighty-two years old last month, his acting credits, starting in the early 1950s, has spanned more than sixty years. And he's still going strong.
Leonard Nimoy is the most logical reason why I love science fiction and fantasy.
Mr. Nimoy, I have been, and always shall be, your fan.
