There goes another Hero…

The curse of Babylon 5 (you know, the one where actors suddenly die rather young) seems to go on and so sad news reaches us that Geoff Jeff Conaway, playing security chief Zack Allen in later seasons, has passed away, presumably from overdosing. It’s a pity he couldn’t get a handle on his addiction problems. While I don’t know much about his involvement in other series, he fitted the role on B5 quite well with his somewhat dumbfounded looks all the time and the slight overacting – it made him the sympathetic guy, who still always loses out on the best parts, be it his ill-fated crush on Lyta or sitting between chairs when it comes to deciding his loyalties… Well, later this year I shall make it a point to watch the series again and relive the memories.
