Re: Michael O'Hare has died.

Honestly, what is it with B5? They've lost so many actors, while the cast of the various Trek series seem to live forever.

Re: Michael O'Hare has died.

What awful news - far too young at 60. I saw him at a con several years ago and he came across as a very genuine and interesting person who had only good things to say about his time on B5.

Requiescat in pace.


And yes - please, no more, not for a very long time.

Re: Michael O'Hare has died.

This is terrible. I really liked Michael O'Hare on B5. He played an atypical leading man and his performance was more complex and deep than a lot of people give him credit for. The scene posted by middyseafort, along with his "Vietnam Syndrome" scene with Garibaldi, were the moments that made me decide to follow B5 on a regular basis. While I grew to like Bruce Boxleitner quite a bit, I would have been quite happy if O'Hare had remained throughout.

RIP, Commander Sinclair.

Re: Michael O'Hare has died.

Another morning of sadness and reflection for Babylon 5 fans.

I never got to meet Michael O'Hare, although he did attend an event in Edinburgh - my mother was there and said he was a lovely man, approachable, funny, and he surprised them all by reading poetry.

I think I may watch some B5 DVDs tonight.

Re: Michael O'Hare has died.

So sad to see another actor pass away so young.

I too have always defended that Sinclair wasn't played "Wooden" because Michael O'Hare was an awful actor, but, rather he was played "Bottled Up with a Hole in his Mind" by a god actor, because that's who the Character was supposed to be.
