    Also, the guy who played Walker Smith in Episode TKO died in 1998 I think, just a year after his wife. Assuming my memory aint fudged.

    Yeah, they be dropping off like flies. Its only a matter of time before we'll hear about the next one, assuming we're still alive by then : /

    Oh well, B5 will continue to endure in the minds of the living......

          I noticed last night that Tim Choate guest starred in a Murder She Wrote episode named 'Night Fears' written by JMS. I'll have to look out for that one as I'd love to see him in a role that didn't require prosthetics.

            Tim Choate also appeared in an episode of Frazier. Oddly, it must be the only one I've never seen. His appearance in "Pearl Harbor" as a navy doctor (with moustache) is lost amidst explosions and the infamous shaky-cam, not to mention the very odd vaseline-on-the-lens cam.

            If you want to see Tim in a large role, go rent the movie "Ghost Story". It's about 4 old men and the secret from their past that returns for revenge. Tim plays the young version of Fred Astaire in the flashback scenes (even though he looks not a bit like Fred Astaire). Borg Queen Alice Krige is also in the film.
            Only a fool fights in a burning house.

              I don't know if you've thought about this yet, but ... In the packs you're doing for Rick Biggs, there is the 9/11 charity pic ... Tim is one of the 10 castmembers who signed it.

                Yeah, I'd thought of that. Sadly, some autographs have increased in 'market value' this year. Heck, I think theres two, maybe three of Rick's autographs in that package.

                It was sweet when I was asking the stars at DragonCon to autograph the 'bird' photo that they were all careful to sign in gold as Rick Biggs had. Somebody said that a 'gold edition' was more valuable. I'd've never thought of that.

                  I saw "Ghost Story" again a couple of months ago, and had forgotten that Tim was in it until I saw his name in the credits. He did well in that - it was a good role.

                    Tim's family asked me to post this message. Feel free to post it to other message boards.

                    ****

                    Tim Choate was killed in a motorcycle accident in downtown Los Angeles the night of September 24th, 2004. He was on his way to rehearsal.

                    He died several weeks before his fiftieth birthday, and left behind a wife and four year old son.

                    Tim was an amazing actor and an even more amazing human being. Those of you who had the pleasure of meeting him on the convention circuit know that he was genuinely kind to everyone he met. Tim talked about the conventions and his Babylon 5 fans often and fondly, and truly enjoyed being Zathras on screen.

                    Donations can be sent in lieu of flowers to The Tim Choate Memorial Fund, P.O. Box 861355, Los Angeles, CA 90086. Proceeds will be placed in an educational trust for his child.
