That sucks. He and Londo had one of the most interesting relationships of any pair on TV ever.
I like the show, that is really sad.
Babylon 5 was one of the best TV shows ever.
Doesn't happen often, me getting so utterly hooked on a show that I try to plan things around it... but B5 was one of those shows... And their relationship was so complex and beyond any other relationships I've seen before or since...
I will have to re-watch B5 again when I get some time... I have them all on DVD.
The one-armed man finally bit it.
Pretty good actor, btw.
I went to the link but didn't see any article. All I saw was Brooke Burke!
DAMN, that sucks...didn't hear it...
B5 was definitely one of the BEST written shows EVER!
He also played the Romulan Commander Tamalak on several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
He was a great charactor actor.. Funny and awsome.
Sadly.. We will all miss if they ever made another B5 movie.
"No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power tyrants and dictators cannot stand. The Centauri learned that lesson once. We will teach it to them again. Although it take a thousand years, we will be free."
"Just over a year ago, Andreas Katsulas -- who loved smoking with a
passion that cannot be described -- was diagnosed with lung cancer,
which by then had already spread to other areas. He quit smoking at
once and went on a healthy diet and vitamin program, but there was
little hope of a good resolution even though the new regimen was very
good for him. When we spoke about it, he laughed, and said, "Now that
I'm dying I've never felt better!"
His spirits were always up and positive, putting everyone at ease about
his condition, because...well, that's the kind of person he was.
A couple of months ago, he and his wife convened a dinner with me,
Doug, and Peter Jurasik, which was filled with laughter and stories and
good food. He wanted to know all the stories we never told him
because, as he said, "Who am I going to tell?" So we did. Because we
knew we were saying goodbye, and there would not be a second chance.
Last night, in the company of his wife and family, Andreas closed his
eyes and went away.
He lived an amazing life...full of travel and wonder and good
work...was part of the world renowned Peter Brook company...he saw the
planet, loved and was loved, ate at great restaurants, smoked too many
cigarettes...he lived a life some people would die for.
And, sadly, due to the last part of that equation...he did.
Memorial arrangements are still being worked out, but will doubtless be
Andreas is gone...and G'Kar with him, because no one else can ever play
that role, or ever will.
I will miss him terribly.
J. Michael Straczynski"
A sad day... a real good actor. I was always pleased when I saw him in a movie..no matter what the role..serious, comedic, whatever... I always loved pointing him out to my daughter and saying "Look!! G'Kar has hair!". Watching B5 was a regular thing for the two of us.
