Why does Spock often say fascinating
On the death of actor Leonard Nimoy : The fascinating Mr. Spock
"Mr. Spock" actor Leonard Nimoy is dead. His agent confirmed this on Friday at the request of the German Press Agency. The actor, who became world famous with the cult television series "Spaceship Enterprise" and the "Star Trek" films, died on Friday at the age of 83 in his home in Los Angeles, according to the "New York Times" Citing his wife reports. The cause of death was terminal lung disease, said Susan Bay Nimoy, according to the newspaper. There had already been reports of his serious illness last year.
Nimoy took on the role of semi-Vulcan Mr. Spock in 1966. Not only did he have pointy ears, but he also had a sharp mind. He felt obliged to logic above all ("Fascinating") - and was thus the sober antithesis to the often impetuous James T. Kirk, played by William Shatner. Although he was the captain of the spaceship Enterprise, he always sought advice from his first officer. Together they penetrated - as it was formulated in the opening credits for each episode - many light years away from Earth into galaxies "that no human had ever seen before". The series made television and cinema history.
For a long time, however, he found it difficult to be reduced to just his role as Mr. Spock. He called his first autobiography provocatively "I'm not Spock." At some point, however, he came to terms with it: "How many actors can claim that they have been identified with a certain role over decades?" His second biography was titled: "I am Spock".
Mister Spock actor Nimoy was not only an actor, director, producer and photographer. He was also politically active. Born in Boston in 1931 as the son of Jewish Orthodox immigrants from the Ukraine, Nimoy, for example, spoke out in favor of a two-state solution to the Middle East conflict. In an open letter from 2011 he referred to the "Star Trek" episode "Bele Chasing Lokai" (1969).
In it, a black and white mutant and his white and black opponent fight each other in the name of their historical identity. According to Nimoy, the comparison should not "downplay the very real problems that separate Israelis and Palestinians". The fictional drama shows, however, that a myth can become a trap. Two states for two nations is a sensible compromise in the dispute between Israelis and Palestinians.
There had already been reports last week that Nimoy had been taken to the hospital by ambulance. Numerous fellow actors asked him for a speedy recovery via the Internet.
Nimoy himself had spoken for the last time four days ago via the short message service Twitter: "Life is like a garden. Perfect moments are possible, but they cannot be preserved except in memory."
Captain Kirk actor William Shatner said goodbye to Nimoy with moving words. "I loved him like a brother," he wrote on Twitter, "We'll all miss his humor, talent and ability to love." (with dpa)
