RIP Stephen Furst

WORFWORF The Burninator
This just appeared on his Facebook page :(
Actor and comedian Stephen Furst died on June 16, 2017 due to complications from diabetes.

Steve has a long list of earthly accomplishments. He was known to the world as an brilliant and prolific actor and filmmaker, but to his family and many dear friends he was also a beloved husband, father and kind friend whose memory will always be a blessing.

To truly honor him, do not cry for the loss of Stephen Furst. But rather, enjoy memories of all the times he made you snicker, laugh, or even snort to your own embarrassment. He intensely believed that laugher is the best therapy, and he would want us to practice that now.

If you knew him personally, remember his gift for lighting up a room. And no matter who you are, when you think of Steve, instead of being sad, celebrate his life by watching one of his movies or use one of his bits to make someone else laugh - really, really hard.

Sincerely,

His sons Nathan and Griffith Furst

    Just found out from Claudia Christian's Facebook page. I can't believe yet another one of the B5 cast is gone and much too early again. It seems almost like a curse, unbelievable. Soon there's no-one left anymore at this rate. Almost all of the male main cast members are gone already now. I think there's now only Peter Jurasik, Bill Mumy and Bruce Boxleitner left. :(

    Mira Furlan
  • I don't think any of the women leads have died. Mira, Claudia, Tracy Scoggins, Pat Tallman, Andrea Thompson, whoever played Na'Toth, are all still alive.

    But yeah, the male leads? :(

    Fear not though, Byron is still alive.

    Hey, Robin Atkin Downes is a pretty cool guy from what I've seen. He did a kick ass job as Miller in Metal Gear. After reading the scripts, I really think the problem was with the writing, and that if there's anything you like about Byron, it's probably because of Robin's portrayal.

    Ummmm.... where's the "reply to" -button so you can quote someone?

    @croxis What about Mira Furlan?

    Yeah, Robin Atkin Downes is alive of course, but he was not main cast. Jason Carter however could be counted as main cast too I think. Afterall he was in 45 episodes.
