JMS on Michael O’Hare’s battle

Posted on: 07 March, 2014

“This hasn’t been discussed anywhere before”.

You don’t expect those comments from a show with as big a fan base as we have. But that’s how series creator J Michael Straczynski begins this moving interview for the Archive of American Television.

The interview discusses Michael O’Hare’s battle with schizophrenia and how Straczynski helped him and dealt with the impact on the show.

It looks like it must’ve been very difficult to discuss this sad time.
