The man who played Commander Spock on the classic television series “Star Trek” has been rushed to hospital.
83-year-old Leonard Nimoy entered the UCLA Medical Centre with “severe chest pains” after feeling discomfort in his chest last Thursday.
Nimoy is battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and has been in and out of hospital over the past few months. He took to Twitter last year after being diagnosed with the condition, even ending off with catchphrase “LLAP – live long and prosper.”
