This Is How the New Spock Said Goodbye to the Old Spock

Feb 27, 2015

Leonard Nimoy, who played Mr. Spock on the original Star Trek series, died Feb. 27 at the age of 83.

One of the most touching tributes to hit social media after Nimoy's wife confirmed his death was from Zachary Quinto, the actor who has played Spock in the last two Star Trek reboot films, Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness.

The two once starred in an Audi commercial together as friendly adversaries. In reality, both actors said that they bonded over playing the hyper-logical half-human and grew to be good friends. Watch the ad below:
