Leonard Nimoy continues to live long and prosper in the hearts of millions of fans everywhere. That's especially true inside the heart of his son, Adam Nimoy. The 61-year-old television director paid tribute to his late father in a very lovely fashion. Yesterday, he married Star Trek actress Terry Farrell, on March 26th, i.e. Leonard Nimoy's birthday, in San Francisco. The day lives on as not only his father's birthday, but Adam's own wedding anniversary as well. Take a look at the ceremony below.
These tributes from Adam Nimoy to Leonard Nimoy are far from the first. In 2016, he directed For the Love of Spock, a documentary examining and paying rememberance to Leonard Nimoy's cultural impact in Star Trek. The documentary was already in the works before Leonard Nimoy left us. Adam Nimoy also directed his dad in The Outer Limits in 1995 for an episode titled "I, Robot," released nearly ten years before the film of the same name.
Leonard Nimoy is also remembered by his daughter, Julie Nimoy. She directed her own documentary tribute to her father, Remembering Leonard: His Life, Legacy and Battle with COPD, which was released last year. Julie Nimoy also went on Twitter to remember her late actor father on his birthday.
This year marks the three year anniversary of Leonard Nimoy's death. The prolific actor/director passed away in Los Angeles on February 27th, 2015. He was 83. Nimoy is, of course, best known for playing Spock in Star Trek. He first played the role in the pilot for Star Trek, which was filmed in 1964 and released on television in 1966, and Nimoy gave his final performance as Spock during his brief cameo in Star Trek Into Darkness, released in 2013.
Leonard Nimoy is also remembered for his role in Mission: Impossible, the television series, and as the host of the documentary series In Search Of..., along with his reoccurring role in Fringe. As a director, meanwhile, Nimoy helmed two Star Trek films, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and Three Men and a Baby, along with a handful of other titles. He is undoubtedly missed by millions of fans, Trekkies and otherwise.
Adam Nimoy is also the director of the upcoming documentary Microwarriors: The Origin and the Destiny, which is expected to arrive later this year. Leonard Nimoy was also the subject of Adam Nimoy's 2014 documentary Leonard Nimoy's Boston, which explored the actor's return to his hometown.
