Expressions like "You leave behind a void" and "Thank you for entertaining us" flooded the social media as celebrities took to micro-blogging site Twitter to share their condolence message for Nimoy, who died on Friday at his home in Bel Air, Los Angeles.

He died of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83, and became an icon courtesy the character Mr. Spock, who comes from planet Vulcan, is hugely intelligent, and impeccably logical, but out of his orbit when it came to being sociable.

Here's what the stars tweeted about the charismatic icon:

Shah Rukh Khan: The eyebrows...the ears...the Vulcan...just got beamed up for good...& leaves behind a void. RIP Mr. Nimoy.
