Mira Furlan, 'Babylon 5' and 'Lost' Actress, Dead at 65


Actress Mira Furlan has died at the age of 65. The news was shared on Furlan's Twitter account and by Babylon 5 writer and executive producer, J. Michael Straczynski.

The Yugoslavian-born actress is best known for her roles as Delenn in the TV series Babylon 5 and Danielle Rousseau on Lost.

"It is a night of great sadness, for our friend and comrade had gone down the road where we cannot reach her," Straczynski wrote in a post. "But as with all things, we will catch up with her in time, and I believe she will have many stories to tell us, and many new roles to share with the universe."


"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which The Party is always right." - George Orwell, 1984

What?? Not only was she a wonderful actress and person (from the interviews I saw of her), she was also much too young to leave us.


RIP

I don't believe in "curses" but I do find it to be a very poignant fact that several of the former cast members of Babylon 5 have died relatively young. So now he have:

Mira Furlan
Jerry Doyle
Andreas Katsulas
Richard Biggs
Michael O'Hare
Stephen Furst

I am shocked and saddened by her passing. She was one of my favorite actresses. In interviews I've seen she always came across as being very approachable and didn't seem to have that typical Hollywood superiority complex. The role I'll always remember her in was Delenn on Babylon 5. Of course, many of the actors on that show didn't seem to fit the Hollywood mold. I think that's one thing that made the show a timeless classic.

According to reports she died from the West Nile Virus. Definitely NOT a typical cause of death for someone living in a western country.
