Live Poll: In Memoriam Face-Off: Delenn vs. Danielle Rousseau

Actress Mira Furlan, who played Minbari Ambassador Delenn on Babylon 5 (1993) and Danielle Rousseau on Lost (2004), has died. Mira passed away at the age of 65 on Wednesday, January 20, following complications from West Nile Virus. Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski shared a heartfelt statement and a tribute video by John E. Hudgens, and Lost Boss Damon Lindelof paid tribute online.

Born in the Croatian capital of Zagreb in 1955, Furlan was a well known, award-winning theater, film and TV actress in the former Yugoslavia. She starred in numerous plays, TV series and films. She emigrated to the U.S. with her husband, Goran Gajic, in November 1991, due to the intolerable political circumstances in her homeland.

For which role will you most remember Mira Furlan: Delenn or Danielle Rousseau?

I sent you a note about this poll, Dan.

I don't know either series as well as I would like to but my brother watched Babylon 5 a lot so I probably first think of Delenn.

A few years ago, when I was visiting a friend in your neck of the woods, actually, I was also very lucky to see a film called 'The Abandoned,' which apparently very few people got the chance to see. I was very moved by the film and thought that her performance was excellent, both vulnerable and regal.
