Is it any wonder that it's exactly where my current avatar is from?
Brilliant stuff, just brilliant.
OK, my 0.02 credits' worth.
1. No question about that - Andreas Katsulas. For all the reasons already mentioned in the posts above. Damn he's a good actor - why he hasn't got wider recognition (or a true chance to show off his talent apart from B5) is a mystery for me.
Sure, he got great material to work with, but it does take a great actor to bring all that potential to life.
2. Peter Jurasik. Again, no surprise here.
He took what was potentially a ridiculous character and made him the true tragic hero.
3. Now it gets trickier... Actually, I am inclined to say Bruce Boxleitner. He made me hate Sheridan with a passion.
And I think - I'm not absolutely sure about this but almost - that it was the character I couldn't stand, not the actor.
As for the rest... they all had good moments as well as bad ones. While I must admit that Mira Furlan is a good actor and her work was generally way above average, she had - for me - far too many overacting or 'cringe' moments.
Same goes for Pat Tallman, even though Lyta was by far my favourite female character. I found Claudia Christian's acting generally good - but she had less to work with than some others.
Re: Lorien... well, he may have been annoying, but Sebastian was IMHO just brilliant - and bringing successfully to life two such very different characters is a true testimony of Wayne Alexander's acting abilities.
