Fact of the Day: Star Trek Doctor

DeForest Kelley was best known for his portrayal of Dr. Leonard McCoy on the original Star Trek series. While never a real doctor in life, he was deeply interested in the medical field. He admitted how proud he was when many fans of Star Trek told him that they became doctors after being inspired by his character.

I think Kelly and Leonard Nimoy were really the two indispensable actors on that show. Don't get me wrong, William Shatner was good, but you could have had another actor in that role (such as Jeffrey Hunter) and it wouldn't have made that much of a difference. It would have with Kelly and Nimoy.
