Picture of Leonard Nimoy 27th Feb 2015

Leonard Nimoy, actor famous for playing Mr Spock in Star Trek, has passed away aged 83 to give DeathList 2015 its first score of the year. Nimoy started acting in the 1950s and played Spock from 1966 to 1969 in the original Start Trek TV show. Nimoy then starred in the role of “The Great Paris” in the Mission: Impossible TV show for a further two years. He would return to Spock when the Star Trek movie started in the late 1970s and continued to make appearances as Spock right up to Star Trek Into Darkness in 2013. Nimoy was making his first appearance on DeathList, being selected at number 37.


The DeathList 2015

The DeathList committee has once again called upon numerous sources of information to compile its list of 50 celebrities that it considers most likely to die in 2015. A quick recap on the DeathList rules: Candidates must be famous enough such that their death is expected to be reported by the UK media; Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die in the near future and only half of the candidates can have appeared on the previous year’s list. DeathList 2014 ended with a disappointing total of 10 successes so we will be looking for DeathList 2015 to show some better form.
