Just read that Richard Biggs (44), the actor who played “Dr. Stephen Franklin” in B5, died in May 21. Apparently he just got out of bed on morning and collapsed with a tear in his aorta. Survived by his wife and two young sons (2 & 4).
Biggs was one of the B5 cast who always had time for the fans and used his popularity to raise funds for various charities and schools, especially for the deaf. (He suffered hearing impairment himself.)
