080: IN VALEN'S NAME

The sci-fi community is in mourning at the passing of a true legend, Andreas Katsulas, better known as Ambassador G'Kar from Babylon 5.

Andreas distinguished himself over five years of the Hugo Award winning series as a multi faceted performer, bestowing upon G'Kar great pathos and tremendous dignity. Without a doubt my favourite character in the entire show, we saw a man with the soul of a poet and the heart of a warrior.

A genre actor, he also appeared in Star Trek Enterprise, Millennium, The Fugitive and made several appearances on Star Trek The Next Generation.

Along with Richard Biggs (Dr Stephen Franklin), he represents another irreplaceable piece of the B5 universe and will be sorely missed.

Andreas died of lung cancer on February 13th at the age of 59. Rest In Peace.
the end.
