Yeah I caught myself thinking about this after I heard about it. He's number 4 as far as main cast members go, more if you count guest stars.

It's been years since I've watched an episode of B5... maybe I should dust off my DVD collection.

Watched "in the Begining" on Youtube the other day. Forgot about the whole part where Londo felt guilty about inadvertently prolonging the Earth Minbari War.

I always liked how they framed the story from Londo's point of view, and used it to provide insight that might not otherwise have been possible.  I particularly liked his monologue and the music that plays behind the scene when he's talking about how hard humanity fought against the Mimbari.
To have just show a straight depiction of the war, would have done the story a great disservice, almost like they were trying to shoehorn in an extra bit of story.  The way it was all connected to so much of what happens later on though, makes In The Beginning addition to the Babylon 5 universe.

Add one more name to the list, Turhan Bey who played Centauri Emperor Turhan; passed away in September of this year.  It's interesting that they simply used his real name, as a Centauri name.

when was B5 made.  if it was in the 80's, we are talking 30 years....  a lot of the actors were middling aged too.

Ahhh, Yep, definately something not right with people kicking over the bucket less than 20 years after...........even if a lot of them were middling aged.
