G’Kar Has Died…

Filed under: General — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

Ambassador G'Kar from Babylon 5 played by Andreas KatsulasI just heard the news that the actor who played G’Kar on Babylon 5, Andrea Katsulas, died on February 13. He was only 59 years old and died of lung cancer.

Babylon 5 was a science fiction television series that I have a love/hate relationship with. I LOVE all the characters and I truly enjoyed watching for the first three seasons or so. After that, however, all the characters were so embedded in treachery and suffering that it was difficult for me to watch. When G’Kar lost his eye to torture, my heart ached.

Babylon 5 - The Complete Television Series (5-Pack)I never finished watching the series, even though we had video taped them all. Our local station was so difficult to get a clear signal with an antenna that we subscribed to cable because of Babylon 5. My sister, Stacey, consumed the entire series over the course of a few months by borrowing all our old VHS tapes.

Now, we own the entire series on DVD and I STILL haven’t watched it all the way through. I guess I should pull out those discs and start watching because I just don’t want to accept that G’Kar died of lung cancer in the end…
