R.I.P. Mira Furlan
Sad news if you’re a fan of the series Babylon 5, which was something of a Star Trek/ Space Soap mashup, with slightly more emphasis on the Soap. I remember Furlan from watching the first three seasons. She played one of the most intriguing alien species on the show, named Delenn, and the series lasted for five years, from 1993-1998.
