Wow. Rather a shocker. I had not heard.

Tim suffered a stroke in last July. Although he has been spotted since then, there are no reported photos of him and he certainly didn't do any work since it happened.
Anyway it convinced me to send him a postcard.

For those of you interested in Tim's progress: he's done two signing events and had a Q&A with an audience two days ago. There were authenticity photos made of the signing, which are not to be published on the WWW (if you do you risk a lawsuit). Tim is now in a wheelchair and, if the tweets on the evening are to believed, his motor skills and speech have been affected, but he is in high spirits and working on his memoirs.

Sad to see people that we have been entertaining us for so long showing signs of failing health. Leonard Nimoy is on oxygen from COPD.

Sad, but we can thank our lucky stars he's still alive. And doing his memoirs.

He's very appreciative of fanmail, although he doesn't reply; if you'd like to send him something, try his agent, Marcia Hurwitz.

Very sad to hear about Tim's stroke. Glad to hear he has recovered, even if partially.

I didn't know that about Lenny Nimoy. Sad news indeed. :(

For the fans: Curry's been working since his stroke, most notably on the Cartoon Network show Over The Garden Wall. Check it out: he plays Auntie Whispers in Chapter 7.

Sounds like there is a bit of slurring. I guess that off hand you can't tell if it is him or that simply how he is doing the character.

Hope he has fully recovered, but that he is working at all is a good sign.

Last week I was ill for a few days and binge watching old cartoons. One of them was "Legend of Prince Valiant", and noticed that Tim starred in it during the opening credits. After a while, I noticed another very familiar voice...Samantha Eggar of Lady Howard fame :). Cannot even remember if I already knew that / read about it somewhere here lol.

There's now official photos of him - besides him being in a wheelchair, the left side of his face appears to be... not fully responsive.

Not unusual for a stroke victim.

First televised interview. He's still very Tim, ambiguous and suave, and sparing a second to check out her (lack of) outfit.
