R.I.P. Richard Biggs (1961 - 2004)

More sad news...

Have just seen on Dark Horizons and then again on JMS News that the actor Richard Biggs, Babylon 5's 'Dr. Stephen Franklin' passed away suddenly on the 22nd.

Reports indicate that he died of a either an aneurysm or a massive stroke. He was 43 years old.

JMS has posted a small tribute online
Ian D. McArdell says...

"You have often said... pass"

Yep, that's very bad news. Wouldn't ever have expected him to be the first of them to go, especially not so soon.

Looks like being cast as a doctor in a ground breaking Sci-Fi series may not be such a good idea...

I wonder what impact this will have on the TMoS film? Depending on when it is set Franklin is likely to be around and about (unless he's quarantined on Earth or it's set significantly after Sleeping in Light (or before In the Beginning))

Anyway, very bad news indeed.
