Nichelle Nichols was hospitalized June 3 after suffering a stroke. A representative for the actress told TMZ she’s awake and resting comfortably at an L.A. hospital. Doctors are conducting tests to determine the severity of the stroke.
Nichols, now 82 years old, played Star Trek’s Lt. Uhura and has been to many fan events including Gallifrey One in LA last February where a load of my friends and other fans had their photo taken with her.
