Passings: Richard Biggs

Sad and shocking news: Richard Biggs, best known for playing Dr. Stephen Franklin on Babylon 5 (though also well known to soap fans for Days of Our Lives), passed away today. Assuming his IMDB birth date is correct, he was only 43: they believe it was a stroke or aneurysm.

I only met him briefly, but saw him at several sci-fi conventions, and he always seemed like a very nice, gracious fellow who was pleased to interact with fans and participate in events. It's especially untimely, given the recent hints we've had from B5 creator J. Michael Straczynski regarding a Bab 5 movie. Assuming it's a go, I hope they make a little dedication to him in the credits.

*nods* That's actually part of why I didn't log back in -- 'cause I scanned LJ before I was about to go back into the game, and saw that, and then decided not to because I knew you'd want to know, and I didn't want to be a downer in the middle of game time. Very much enjoyed meeting your friends, though!

It's a damned shame, for certain. Thanks for posting the additional information in your LJ.
