William Shatner, George Takei Offer Well Wishes To Leonard Nimoy After Hospitalization

After Leonard Nimoy was hospitalized late last week, following complaints of “severe chest pains,” William Shatner and George Takei have taken to Twitter to send their well wishes to their friend and former Star Trek co-star.

Last Thursday (2/19), the 83-year-old Nimoy was taken to the UCLA Medical Center, after a 911 call was placed on his behalf.

He announced last year that he’d been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, 30 years after he stopped smoking.

Nimoy tweeted the following on Monday (2/23):

In recent years, Nimoy reprised his role of Spock (Prime) in both the 2009 Star Trek reboot and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness.

As we did with our original report, we here at wish Mr. Nimoy a speedy recover.

Wishing Leonard Nimoy a speedy recovery. #LLAP #StarTrek
