"A Terrible Loss"

Actor Richard Biggs (Dr. Franklin on Babylon 5) died Saturday, he was 44.

J. Michael Straczynski (creator of Babylon 5) posted on the Babylon 5 newsgroup that he died "either an aneurysm or a massive stroke." JMS added "What seems to have happened, happened quickly. He woke up, got up out of bed...and went down."

"Richard was a consummate professional, but more than that, he was an honorable, stand-up guy,"

Biggs played Dr. Stephen Franklin for the entire 5 year run of Babylon 5, also in three of the spin off TV movies. Prior to that he enjoyed a long run on Days Of Our Lives, winning a Best Supporting Actor award from Soap Opera Digest. Recently he's had recurring roles on Guiding Light.
