Michael O'Hare has died.

From J. Michael Strazynski
I regret that I must convey the sad news that Michael O'Hare passed away today. He suffered a heart attack on Sunday and was in a coma until his passing this afternoon. This is a terrible loss for all B5 fans and everyone involved with the show wishes to convey their condolences to the O'Hare family. He was an amazing man.
Rest in Peace Commander Sinclair

Very sad news.

That's now four main cast member deaths for a show that started in 1993. B5 must be fast approaching some sort of unfortunate record of premature deaths.

He will be missed, certainly by those of us who enjoyed his role on B5.

RIP, Commander.

You're not the only one who thinks that way. From FB:

Fans of J. Michael Straczynski wrote:
Richard Biggs. Andreas Katsulas. Jeff Conaway. Tim Choate. Michael O'Hare. Enough already. Go pick on somebody else's cast.


I never met Michael O'Hare but very much admired his work on B5.

Re: Michael O'Hare has died.

I remember a while ago, J. Michael Straczynski was asking if anyone knew how to contact him. While JMS kept the reason why to himself, many speculated it was due to Michael O'Hare's declining health.

Sad to hear of his passing. I really liked his portrayal of Commander Sinclair and will defend his acting in Babylon 5 every time. Sinclair was supposed to be played as somewhat wooden and Sinclair captured that.
