Slashdot reader The Grim Reefer shares a report from the BBC:
Babylon 5 and Lost actress Mira Furlan has died at the age of 65, her family and management have confirmed. Furlan played Minbari Ambassador Delenn in the 1990s sci-fi TV drama, Babylon 5, and Danielle Rousseau in the noughties mystery drama, Lost.
Her family told the BBC the Croatian actress died on Wednesday due to complications with West Nile Virus… A message on Furlan’s Twitter account, confirmed to be taken from the autobiography she was working on, read: “I look at the stars. It’s a clear night and the Milky Way seems so near. That’s where I’ll be going soon.”
Babylon 5 J Michael Straczynski wrote on Twitter, “It is a night of great sadness, for our friend and comrade had gone down the road where we cannot reach her. But as with all things, we will catch up with her in time, and I believe she will have many stories to tell us, and many new roles to share with the universe.”
