  1. Just heard that Richard Biggs (Dr Franklin) passed away from a possible massive stroke.
    You'll be much missed richard.

    Sad irony that Paul Winfield (who played his father) passed away only a few months back.

    Me neither. I'm pretty cut up about it myself and I'm not the one named after a Babylon 5 character!

    Err... What? Hello?

    Rick Biggs gone?!?! WOW! ****!!!

    Granted I'm not a die-hard fan of B5 in the meaning that my life doesn't revolve around the show, but still...
    This came as a blow.

    He only got to be 44 years old. Poor guy, and poor family.

    But at least it was quick.

    There's a copy of JMS' email about this here


    Sorry if I'm not as coherent as usual, but I lost a very good friend a few weeks ago, and was almost over that, and then this happens... ****!

    Now why can't I type * in caps?.... ****!

    He was a good actor, and when I heard him live in 97 he was quite incredible. And from Pat Tallman I heard he was a really stand-up guy who did his best to make others feel welcome...

    ****! ****! ****! ****! !!!!

    Oh, well.... :(
