    Great actor, sad to see him go.

    G'Kar and Londo made B5 IMO, they stole the show from the human and Minbari characters and the Narn/Centuri conflict was far better drama then the main Shadows plot.

    The evolution of their characters was so skillfully and diametrically executed. G'Kar started as a brash, headstrong warrior full of hatred, and ended as a wise, almost prophetic philosopher, whereas Londo began as a proud functionary of an old-school empire and turned into the show's most tragic figure. It was an opera, and thankfully they had a couple of excellent actors to pull it off.

    That's really sad, I just started watching B5 over again and G'kar was my favourite.

    It makes we wonder sometimes how Straczynski could write such great stuff for them while turning in cliched and sometimes cringe-worthy stuff for Sheridan and Delenn, sometimes within the space of a single episode.

    That guy was a fantastic actor and was always fun to watch - as Tomalak and as G'kar. I never watched The Fugitive. Still, he was an amazing actor; he was always capable of portraying just the right level of attitude or emotion for his "bad guy" roles.

    That sucks. I always loved him on B5, especially when it was G'Kar and Lando. They had so many great scenes together. Man I miss watching B5.I remeber watching it all the time with my dad :(
