Leonard Nimoy, who played Mr Spock in the original Star Trek series, has died.
How strange it is to mourn the passing of an actor because of the character he developed. But how much less strange it is when the character meant a lot to you as a child. Nimoy himself struggled with his strong association with Spock, but he eventually recognised that he became a true icon of pop culture. It’s a sad, and yet inevitable, day.
