AFP/Getty ImagesHollywood has sadly lost several famous actors already this year. Here’s a look back at 12 movie and TV stars who passed away in 2015.

1. Leonard Nimoy

The famed Star Trek icon died in late February at the age of 83 from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The actor, who broke into the industry with the 1952 film Kid Monk Baroni, had small parts in projects like Dragnet, Perry Mason, and Get Smart, before landing his best-known role: Star Trek’s Spock. The role made him a household name and earned him three Emmy nominations. After Star Trek’s run ended, he went on to have a career as a voice actor, narrator, and director and also penned two autobiographies. More recently, he had a recurring role on the Fox series Fringe, which ended in 2013.

The actor had been in critical condition, following a head injury he obtained after getting struck by a car’s sideview mirror while crossing a street in Hollywood. Woolf was best known for his recurring role as Meep in the last season of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story, entitled Freak Show. Prior to that, the actor was also featured in 2010’s Insidious, 2012’s Woggie, 2013’s Dead Kansas, and last year’s Haunting Charles Manson.
