Leonard Nimoy Announces Retirement from Acting

Leonard Nimoy has filmed his final appearance on Fringe, and plans to make an appearance at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, followed by a trip to the small town of Vulcan (which has taken the coincidental name of their town to make it a Star Trek tourist stop) and then plans on hanging up his actors hat.

Those could be the very last public appearances for Mr Nimoy as an actor as he plans to now retire from acting.

FilmJunk shares:

79-year-old Leonard Nimoy has just finished shooting his final appearance as Dr. William Bell on the TV show Fringe, and he feels that it’s time to go out on a high note. This almost certainly means he will not be making an appearance in J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Trek sequel either.

I think this is an appropriate time for Nimoy to step away. Its not like he will be hurting for the money, and his iconic character has passed the torch to his younger self. His story in the Star Trek world is done as he hovers off into the sunset, and his appearance on Fringe, while very interesting is not going to kill the show when his part is done.

Nimoy has earned the rest, and I don’t think anyone would fault him for stepping away from the camera after this long and deserving career.
