‘New’ Spock Zachary Quinto:​ Leonard Nimoy was inspiring

The talented Leonard Nimoy, best known for his role as Spock in the original Star Trek, died Friday at age 83.

Just last week Zachary Quinto, the actor who reprised the Spock role in the most recent Star Trek movies, spoke fondly of Nimoy on Tell Me Everything with John Fugelsang.

“I don’t even think I ever imagined that we would become as close as we are, but there is definitely a very paternal connection that I have with him. And a deep love and respect and gratitude for his presence in my life,” Quinto said. “Where he is in his life and how he got here — it’s an inspiration to me.”

The two co-starred in an Audi commercial, a playful nod to the old Spock vs. new Spock comparisons.

Today, Quinto remembered his mentor on Instagram.
