Leonard Nimoy died in the morning of Friday the 27th of February. He was an American actor known for playing Mr. Spock – a “Star Trek” character.

The cause of his death was a pulmonary disease which made it difficult for him to breathe. Mr. Nimoy said last year that he had the disease, and he attributed it to his years of smoking.

Leonard Nimoy also played in other TV series, but people will forever remember him as Spock.

Difficult words: character (a person in a film or a book), pulmonary (relating to the lungs), attributed something to something (to say that something is caused by something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
