Who Was I On Soaps? Leonard Nimoy! Learn More Here >>>
Welcome to our new weekly feature 'Who Was I On Soaps?'. Every week we will feature a film or prime time actor that spent some time on a soap opera!
Our first name is none other than Mr. Spock himself, Leonard Nimoy!
Before he would boldly go where no man has gone before, he went to General Hospital!
Nimoy played a drug dealer named Bernie in the 17th episode of season 1 of General Hospital in 1963! His character showed up on the doorsteps of Peggy Mercer to drop of pills for her friend, Roy Lansing.
Pay records from that time revealed he was paid $145 for the episode. 3 years later he embarked on the Star Trek role that he was identified by for the rest of his life.
