Just a little over a two week’s ago ‘Star Trek’ fans lost one of their most loved performers in Leonard Nimoy and the feelings of loss are still being widely felt at this great mans passing.
Leonard Nimoy is a loss that has also been felt by the Entertainment industry and to that end it comes as no surprise that ‘The Big Bang Theory’ the hit CBS comedy series has put together a special tribute for the actor.
The popular sitcom’s creator Chuck Lorre used his weekly ‘vanity card’ to pay respects to the Star Trek actor, who died last Friday (February 27).
The card featured an image of Nimoy, along with the sentence: “The impact you had on our show and our lives is everlasting.”
One of Nimoy’s final acting gigs was on ‘The Big Bang Theory’ where he did some voice over work as Spock in order to tempt Sheldon into opening a collectable action figure that Penny had given to him and Leonard. It’s a very funny episode of the series and Nimoy’s contribution to it made for some wonderful television.
“I thoroughly enjoyed myself,” Nimoy said at the time of filming the episode. “[They’re] a talented company and a smart show; they made me [feel] welcome.”
