Passing of Turhan Bey

Turhan Bey, who portrayed Emperor Turhan in 'The Coming of Shadows,' has passed away at age 90. A wonderful performance, to be sure. I remember reading somewhere that JMS got some grief for killing off the character after one episode, because people on set enjoyed working with Mr. Bey.

Re: Passing of Turhan Bey

I'd liked him as an actor for years, when he played on B5. And, I liked his character and performance on B5 very much. He does seem to have had a long and full life.

He also played Turval in "Learning Curve."

Sad to see him pass away, I enjoyed Emperor Turhan and Turval both, as well as his parts in the Ali Baba movies. I'm happy he was fortunate enough to have a long and happy life
