According to the Los Angeles Times, paramedics responded to a medical call at the home of 83-year-old Leonard Nimoy, who has lung disease.
The “Star Trek” actor was reportedly taken to UCLA Medical Center, though a spokesman for the hospital could not “confirm, deny or acknowledge” Nimoy’s admittance.
Gossip site TMZ claims the actor, most known for his role as Captain Spock, was having severe chest pains when the 911 call was made Monday.
Before the call, Nimoy tweeted poetry and words of inspiration to his followers.
