Very sad :cry:

No old Spock in new Star Trek.... I guess that'll be the last time we see an old character appear in a film.

I guess he knew his time was coming... on the 23rd Feb he tweeted this:

A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

What a guy. Will be missed...

I feel incredibly sad about this. One of those actors you assumed would be around forever; I didn't realise he was that old.

A great loss, but a life well lived. RIP Spock.

Very sad. I always liked the original STrek. I much prefer it to all the other, newer scifi shows but as a child I never liked Spock, to my young eyes he was boring but when I watched it a few years back I realised how clever a character portrayal he was.
Followed him on twitter and he was a very kind, thoughtful man...real shame.

The Final Frontier: He's boldly gone. He lived long and prospered.

RIP Mr Spock.

And a brilliant, light-hearted way to remember him:

The mark of a great human being is that there are outpourings of nothing but affection and appreciation for them when they die.

Just like Rik Mayall last year, nobody has a bad word to say about Leonard Nimoy, there's an awful lot of fondness for the guy.

It feels like we've lost an old friend. Everyone but everyone knew who Spock was, not to mention all the other work he did during his life. RIP you wonderful man. :(

And also just like Rik Mayall; he was supposed to be immortal, wasn't he?
