Mira Furlan, an actress best known for her roles on the fantastical television series “Babylon 5” and “Lost,” died on Wednesday at her home in Los Angeles. She was 65.
The cause was complications of the West Nile virus, her manager, Chris Roe, said.
From 1993 to 1998, Ms. Furlan was most famous in the science fiction community as one of the stars of “Babylon 5.” She played Ambassador Delenn, representing an alien race called the Minbari, on the space station that told the story of the relationships, politics, interspecies tensions and galactic conflicts aboard a United Nations-type space station in the mid-23rd century.
