At 80 years old, the wildly popular veteran of science-fiction film and television has decided to call it a career.
Leonard Nimoy recently announced on his twitter feed that he’s stepping down from acting and appearances permanently.
The recent octogenarian will no longer appear in any television shows or movies, and after three final public appearances at the upcoming Star Trek conventions in Las Vegas and Chicago and Atlanta’s DragonCon. His directing career will also come to a permanent end.
It’s not the first time Nimoy has discussed retirement, but he’s going through with it this time, and I think the likelyhood that any role will tempt him back out again is low.
