While the role of Spock has come to define Leonard Nimoy in the minds of most people, it’s only one facet of the life of this very talented man. Nimoy’s career has spanned many disciplines as he has become an accomplished actor, director, and photographer.
Recently Nimoy sat down with L.A. Times reporter Geoff Boucher (also of the Nerdist Channel) for an interview on Hero Complex: The Show. In the interview Nimoy talks candidly about his career and about the lasting cultural impact of Star Trek.
In addition, he delves into the making of Star Treks III and IV and how his passion for—and approach to—photography has been influenced by his acting and directing.
Watch Part I below. Part II will be released soon.
