“I loved him like a brother. We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love,” tweeted William Shatner, who co-starred with Nimoy as Captain James T. Kirk.

“He created a role that nobody else could play. Multitalented writer,actor,director. A terrific&sweet man. RIP Leonard Nimoy ” – Larry King  @kingsthings
