😥😭 For me Mira’s role as Delenn, and her always amazing performance, defined Babylon 5. It was her talent for me that made that show not just a good show, but a great show. And yes, I’ve always had a crush on Mira, in large part due to her role in B5.
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

UPDATE: (added 1/27/21)
I saw this tribute video to Mira Furlan and her various roles. It collects a lot of Mira’s best moments in her role as Delenn in B5 and of her speaking at a convention. It also acknowledges a number of the other main characters from the show whose performers have left us far too early. I found it very touching and wanted to both share and save it, so I’m adding it here.
