Richard Biggs R.I.P.

Looks like bad news for B5 fans. Richard Biggs (Dr. Stephen Franklin from Babylon 5) passed away on Saturday the 22nd May, aged 43. Read full text for the news posting by JMS.

I was awakened today with several phone calls from 
cast members and Doug to pass along the terrible news 
that this morning, Richard Biggs passed away.  

We're still gathering information, so take none of 
this as firm word, but what seems to have happened, 
happened quickly.  He woke up, got up out of 
bed...and went down.  The paramedics who showed up 
suggested it was either an aneurysm or a massive stroke.

His family members have been informed, and all of 
the the cast have, as far as we can determine, also 
been informed.  

This is a terrible loss for all of us.  
Richard was a consummate professional but more than 
that he was an honorable, stand-up guy.  If he gave 
you his word on something, you never had to wonder 
about it afterward.  He was always helpful and 
supportive of all the cast, even those who only 
came in for one episode, always with a ready smile 
and determined to do whatever it took to
make the scene work.  He was, quite simply, a 
terrific guy, and everyone here is just 
devastated at the news.

More word as this develops.  We may try to have 
some kind of fund raiser to help give whatever 
assistance may be helpful for his kids.

We all miss him terribly.
