“He was a gentle, gentle creature,” Pine begins. “Many people in this business with that kind of career and pedigree can walk onto a set and sometimes you feel like the air is taken out of the room. He never required that kind of a space.”
“He was a very Zen, quiet, beautiful man,” he adds. “Very observant. There was a scene in the first film where I meet Spock Prime and he tells me about my father. There’s so much waiting around on set. There’s obviously a lot of time when you’re acting across from from someone, but really more often than not you’re just sitting in a director’s chair shooting the shit. We talked about art, we talked about photography, we talked about his philanthropy, we talked about travel, we talked about food. He was a renaissance man of the highest order, but what I always appreciate, and what I’m not really practicing now, is that men of few words really don’t have to say much to convey a tremendous amount of empathy, of intelligence, of presence. He’s a man that listened well.”
So guess who has their bags listed at Leonard Nimoy’s official shop? That’s right! ME! woohoo! I was asked about 4 months ago to make some bags to be sold atshopllap and it’s been killing me keeping this news to myself.
I am so tickled and thrilled and proud to have my items listed there- never would have thought something like this could happen 3 years ago when I started.
