(Reuters) - Leonard Nimoy, famed for his portrayal of Mr. Spock on the "Star Trek" science fiction TV series and movies, has died after battling chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83.

Nimoy, who had grappled with a love-hate relationship for his logical human-alien screen self, died Friday morning. His granddaughter confirmed Nimoy's death in a post to his Twitter account, @TheRealNimoy.

"Leonard Nimoy created a positive role model who inspired untold numbers of viewers to learn more about the universe. Many of those people are ardent space supporters and industry leaders today," Space Foundation Chief Executive Elliot Pulham said in a statement.

Last year, Nimoy disclosed on Twitter that he had been diagnosed with the progressive lung disease.

"I quit smoking 30 years ago. Not soon enough," he tweeted to his 810,000 followers. "Grandpa says, quit now!!"




It is not logical to be upset, Yet I am.

This is very sad; I am a very big fan. Actually I think that Mr. Spock defines Star Trek more than does Capt. Kirk. He will be missed.

Today, a star went back to the sky. He created his own legacy through Spock and it's up to us to carry it on.

After Star Trek, as the master of disguise in Mission: Impossible.
