Andreas Katsulas passes away

This one caught me by surprise. He died of lung cancer 10 days ago at the age of 59.

Science fiction fans will probably remember him best as G'Kar from Babylon 5. This does not bode well for the future of the Babylon license, as JMS is still occasionally putting out Babylon related movies and pilots. The most recent one was "Babylon 5: The Legend of the Rangers" in 2002. Althogh funding fell apart for another B5 movie "The Memory of Shadows", JMS was still hoping to make it sometime in 2006-2008.

Katsulas isn't the first B5 main cast member to pass away either. Richard Biggs, who played Dr. Franklin, passed away in 2004 in his fourties.
