Re: Michael O'Hare has died.

I liked Sinclair a lot and I liked the way that O'Hare portrayed him. I'm very, very upset to see that he has passed away. What a complete bummer.

These actors are all leaving us far too soon. Now this. My parents are both the same age as O'Hare.

Re: Michael O'Hare has died.

I'm sorry to hear about Michael O'Hare. I saw O'Hare speak at the San Diego Comic Con B5 panel shortly before the series proper premiered. He was funny and eloquent.

His performance as Sinclair is one of the things that drew me into BABYLON 5, especially in the pilot. While O'Hare wasn't a spectacular actor, the role and his performance in it was quite different than the typical SF-hero at the time. There was something almost Robert Culp-ish about both O'Hare and Sinclair that I quite enjoyed. Unlike Sheridan, Sinclair was a hero who had yet to arrive, who didn't have all the answers, and had a long-buried rage waiting to be unleashed. Which is why O'Hare played him as a bottled-up character, that was often mistaken for being "wooden."

I was disappointed to see him leave the show after one season. I very much enjoyed his performance on the series. EDIT: Someone just posted this on youtube:

Re: Michael O'Hare has died.

God damn it! Another Babylon 5 actor leaves us. This news is pretty devastating. Please, no more. Let the rest all die very very old people.

Rest in Peace, Commander Sinclair, Entil'Zha Valen, The One Who Was.

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.
Now that I think about it, his portrayal was a much quieter and stoic one, similar to Jeffrey Hunter (both of whom, of course, were replaced with much more lively and energetic performances).

Admttedly, I think I preferred Bruce Boxleitner, but I've sometimes been curious how the series would've played out if they'd stayed with Sinclair the whole way through. I know that he would've been the one who hooked up with Delenn, and Carolyn Sykes and later Catherine Sakai would've assumed the role of the love interest who is presumed dead on an expedition, only to later return alive as a brainwashed Shadow agent (a role that was filled by Anna Sheridan).

Anyway, farewell, Minbari not born of Minbari. He's gone beyond the rim to reuinite with Dr. Franklin, Zathras, Dr. Kyle, G'Kar, and Zack.

Re: Michael O'Hare has died.

Damn it. I really liked O'Hare's portrayal of Sinclair, and wonder what the show had been like had he stayed. It is really sad it seems like the Babylon 5 cast is being picked off one by one.

RIP.
