Leonard Nimoy Makes Several Public Appearance after Retiring

Leonard Nimoy may have officially retired from acting in April, but he has not left the world of public appearances behind. On June 27 in Vancouver, BC, Nimoy and William Shatner will appear together onstage at the official Star Trek Convention.

Nimoy announced this spring that he is going to concentrate on his photography and spend time with family and is leaving Hollywood behind. But in April he went to Vulcan, Canada for a parade in his honor and last week he attended the E3 2010 gaming convention in Los Angeles. He was there to help promote the new motion control game Yoostar2 in which you can select movie scenes and virtually perform alongside your favorite actors. Nimoy chose to play Arnold's title role in The Terminator. And while he uttered the famous lines "I'll be back" for the demo of the game, it may just be his last official acting gig.

If you're lucky enough to live in the Vancouver, be sure to check out the Shatner/Nimoy reunion at the Trekkie convention. For tickets visit the CreationNet site.

The rest of you can watch this Archive of American Television video in which Nimoy talks about Spock's signature moves.
