Mira Furlan.

Being involved with Babylon 5 seems to have been very unhealthy.

We all have signed the pacts, we knew so well nothing was left
We are being born at the sound of ends, and yes we still believe in beauty
It used to be the pride of Man, now a flame put out by the cold in his hand

The causes of Furlan’s death were not made public, but Babylon 5 creator Straczynski hinted that the actress was sick for some time. In the Twitter post with which her death was announced, we read the touching words of Mira Furlan: “I look at the stars. It is a clear night and the Milky Way seems so close. That’s where I’ll go soon. ‘We are all star stuff,’ suddenly I remember Delenn’s line from Joe’s script. Not a bad prospect. I’m not afraid. In the meantime, let me close my eyes and feel the beauty around me. And take a breath under the dark sky full of stars. Breathe in. Exhale. That’s all”.

Captain Tom....an amazing man, a great and patriotic career and a true friend to the UK NHS where at the age of 99 he was still raising money for them 

RIP Captain Tom
