Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

This gaunt, satur- nine, deep-voiced actor has earned popculture immortality-whether he likes it or not-as the unemotional half-Vulcan Mr. Spock on the original "Star Trek" TV series, a role he has played for a quartercentury. Initially an actor trained in the theater (a venue he continues to visit), Nimoy first worked on the big screen doing bits in such classics as Francis Goes to West Point (1953), Them! (1954), and The Brain Eaters (1958), the most notorious-and prescient-being an alien invader in the serial Zombies of the Stratosphere (1952). He coproduced and starred in a film adaptation of Genet's Deathwatch in 1966, just before he was cast in "Star Trek," which ran on network TV until 1969. After "Trek" was canceled, he was a regular on "Mission: Impossible" (1972-74) and hosted the reality series "In Search of ..." (1976-82), while doing occasional features such as Catlow (1971) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978). In 1979 he glued on the pointy ears again for Star Trek: The Motion Picture and killed off his breadwinning character (temporarily) in 1982's Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Nimoy made his feature directorial debut in 1984 with Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and repeated the chore (as well as cowriting the story) for the fourth chapter, The Voyage Home in 1986. He then went on to direct other features, including 3 Men and a Baby (1987), The Good Mother (1988), Funny About Love (1990), and Holy Matrimony (1994), and added "executive producer" to his résumé with the sixth Trek feature, The Undiscovered Country in 1991, which he also cowrote. Nimoy has also appeared in a number of TV movies and miniseries, notably as Golda Meir's first husband in "A Woman Called Golda" (1982) and starred as concentration camp survivor Mel Mermelstein in Never Forget (1991), which he also produced.
