Iconic actor Leonard Nimoy dead at 83

Actor Leonard Nimoy, best known for his role as Mr. Spock on "Star Trek" was confirmed dead this morning by his wife Susan Bay Nimoy, according to The New York Times.

Susan told The Times that the cause of his death was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, likely due to years of smoking -- a habit he gave up nearly 3 decades ago.  

Nimoy first appeared as Spock in the first aired episode of "Star Trek," in 1966, and he continued to portray the calm, methodical and calculating character as recently as 2013 in the movie "Star Trek Into Darkness."

In his lifetime Nimoy received three Emmy nominations for his role as Mr. Spock, but he we will always be remembered for his character's signature "Vulcan salute" hand gesture, which Nimoy created, and the phrase "live long and prosper."
