Actress Mira Furlan has passed away at the age of 65.

Furlan was best-known for her roles in the series ‘Lost’ and ‘Babylon 5’.

The message was confirmed by a tweet on her official Twitter account.

A post today shared a quote from the actress as well as a photo and the dates “09/07/1955-01/20/2021”, confirming that she died two days ago.

The quote from the tweet reads: “I look at the stars. It’s a clear night and the Milky Way seems so near. That’s where I’ll be going soon.

“”We’re all star stuff,” I suddenly remember Delenn’s line from Joe’s script. Not a bad prospect. I am not afraid.

“In the meantime, let me close my eyes and sense the beauty around me. And take that breath under the dark sky full of stars.

“Breathe in. Breathe out. That’s all.”

The cause of death has not been confirmed.

‘Babylon 5’ creator Joe Michael Straczynski, who was among the first to play tribute to Furlan, said the cast and crew of the series had “known for some time now that Mira’s health was fading.”

“We kept hoping that she would improve,” he wrote. “In a group email sent to the cast a while back, I heard that she might be improving.”

Then he was told by ‘Babylon 5’ star Peter Jurasik that “Goran’s bringing Mira home.”

He posted an In Memoriam for the actress, captioned: “It is a night of great sadness, for our friend and comrade had gone down the road where we cannot reach her.

“But as with all things, we will catch up with her in time, and I believe she will have many stories to tell us, and many new roles to share with the universe.”

He also wrote: “Mira was a good and kind woman, a stunningly talented performer, and a friend to everyone in the cast and crew of ‘Babylon 5’ and we are all devastated by the news.

“The cast members with whom she was especially close since the show’s end will need room to process this moment, so please be gentle if they are unresponsive for a time.”
