RIP Stephen Furst
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.
His sons Nathan and Griffith Furst
Another B5 great passes beyond the rim.
But yeah, the male leads?
Fear not though, Byron is still alive.
@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.
Small note the actor who played Byron also did the character voice overs for the Demon Hunter in Diablo 3.
Galen, was in a few episodes of Fringe as the observer, I thought to watch some other scifi other then B5 and the usual. I'm binge watching Fringe and I'm almost through S4.
Such sad news. I was looking through an old CC pass out with his signature on it the other day...
These B5 cast members' deaths happen way too frequently and it hurts me in a special way because I was (and still am) such a diehard fan of the show.

Greets to PJH btw! (B5ItF-Finland forums )
Edit: This is what I wrote when Michael O'Hare died: "Wow, what a shock. I've been reading this past week old, saved messages from the old B5ItF-Finland forum, and never really even visiting Firstones anymore until now... and I spotted this news. Just somehow a weird timing."
Exactly the same happened this time too.
It saddens me to see this happening, but that's just the cycle of life in its most simplest form. We can follow some steps to make our visit here a bit longer, but the counter never stops ticking. Maybe only for the First One the story is different than for us mortals.
My respects and memories of these people will remain as long as my counter still ticks.
