To All B5 Fans Dr Franklin checks out =(((


Recommended Posts

I was awakened today with several phone calls from cast members and Doug to

pass along the terrible news that this morning, Richard Biggs passed away.

We're still gathering information, so take none of this as firm word, but what

seems to have happened, happened quickly. He woke up, got up out of bed...and

went down. The paramedics who showed up suggested it was either an aneurysm or

a massive stroke.

His family members have been informed, and all of the the cast have, as far as

we can determine, also been informed.

This is a terrible loss for all of us. Richard was a consummate professional but more than that he was an honorable, stand-up guy. If he gave you his word on something, you never had to wonder about it afterward. He was always

helpful and supportive of all the cast, even those who only came in for one episode, always with a ready smile and determined to do whatever it took to make the scene work. He was, quite simply, a terrific guy, and everyone here

is just devastated at the news.

(this is from JMS creator of B5)

Damn that Sucks.. the Guy was Young too :angry:

I read this yesterday. Very sad, he was only in his 40's.

Terrible news! Richard Biggs did a fantastic job with the character of Franklin on Babylon 5. He made much more out of the role than the stereotypical "medical character", thanks in part to both his considerable skill as an actor and Joe Micheal Straczynski's writing talent. It's terrible to see people die so young. Humans are meant to pass late in life, not mid life.

Damn. What's happened to this cast is crazy compared to how long we had the original ST cast with us. I still hold out hope that someone will reboot the series in the future.

I bet Walter Koenig was behind it!

Not likely, He's the sweetest old man. Met him at my local Comic-con and got his autograph on my B5 season 1 DVDs.

Chief Garibaldi was my favorite... this is terrible news :(
