The Most Annoying Guest Character In B5?

Let's remember the most annoying guest characters in the show.

One of them is surely colonel Ari Ben Zayn from "Eyes".Very annoying.

Another candidate could be the Lumati ambassador in "Acts Of Sacrifice".

And let's also not forget that Jinxo guy from "Grail".

What's your opinion?

The actor playing Ari Ben Zayn was bang slap in the middle of a messy divorce according to Walter Koenig (who mentioned it in interview),so that might explain some of the insane hammy aggressionnin his performance.

Jinxo was alright... he was just a bit of a spanner.

Zento got on my pip with some of his facial expressions in By Any Means.

Larry DiTillio said the same in his introduction in the Other Voices script book (volume 2):
Quote:
As Director Jim Johnston expressed it “ He’s playing every line like he’s doing Macbeth”. This over-the-top performance caused infinite delays in shooting as Jim tried to rein him in to no avail.

Jeremiah was okay. He would have been better, if the Zarg had had him for lunch...

Jinxo was terrible, and compared to his first appearance in the series Turhan Bey was very annoying in his season 5 appearance. Although based on what I've heard he was so far gone by that point that he couldn't remember any of his lines.

I didn't mind Jinxo. I pretty much loathed every single telepath in Byron's gang, though.
