With the greatest sadness we have learned of the recent death of Mira Furlan. Mira brought such strength and compassion to the charachter of Delenn. As JMS writes, qualities that were already part of her nature.
JMS re-posted this video on his Twitter account. I think it's a really fitting tribute, so reposting here too.
Here's a lovely epitaph by JMS, and there have been more tweets and posts on other social media by her "family", the cast and crew of Babylon 5.
"It is a night of great sadness, for our friend and comrade had gone down the road where we cannot reach her. 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."
Claudia Christian's raw, eloquent words capture beautifully their friendship.
If I get time later, I'll write all of these out so anyone who has sight problems can read them too. A very sad day indeed.
