Mira Furlan has sadly died.
The actress’ team took to her Twitter account on Thursday (January 21) to announce that she had died the day before. She was 65-years-old.
Mira was best known for her roles as Deleen in the’90s series Babylon 5 and Danielle Rousseau on the 2000s series Lost.
Shortly after the news broke, Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski shared a tribute in honor of Mira on Twitter.
“Mira was a good and kind woman, a stunningly talented performer, and a friend to everyone in the cast and crew of ‘Babylon 5,’ and we are all devastated by the news,” Joe wrote. “The cast members with whom she was especially close since the show’s end will need room to process this moment, so please be gentle if they are unresponsive for a time. We have been down this road too often, and it only gets harder.”
While her cause of death has not been announced, Joe revealed in his message that he knew Mira‘s “health was fading.”
Mira is survived by her husband Goran Gajić and their son Marko Lav Gajić.
Our thoughts are with Mira Furlan‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
It is a night of great sadness, for our friend and comrade had gone down the road where we cannot reach her. But as with all things, we will catch up with her in time, and I believe she will have many stories to tell us, and many new roles to share with the universe. pic.twitter.com/HyQlqyC19v
