She obviously liked the character otherwise I don't see why she would have reprised it in season five.
    I had no idea Mary Kay was like that. Very interesting . . . that explains why she was only in a hadnfull of eps. I wonder why she was like that?

    Not quite. Na'toth's recasting was due to Julie Caitlyn Brown not wanting to do prosthetics work anymore. Due to the face that she had come to the rescue at the last minute when the first actress hired had trouble with the prosthetics, Julie wasn't bound by the same contract that the rest were.
    I knew about Brown. I ment that Draal's recasting was the only one explained in story.

    Anna Sheridan can be added to that list, I'd say. And depending on how you want to consider the quick shot of Sheridan's parents when he was under the influence of the energy creature that had hitched a ride on him and wanted him to take it back to the time rift, one could also say Pappa Sheridan too.

    No, because the *character* (different actor, same character) wasn't recast, only the station commander.

    started a topic Recasting Roles

    Recasting Roles

    If my memory serves me correctly, in the history of B5 there have been only 3 roles which were recast:

    Na'Toth
    Draal
    Tannier

    We have been making all this fuss over rumors. JMS has said NOTHING so far. I'm going to remain hopefull, because I have faith in JMS, and (wait for it. . . . wait for it) Faith Manages (I had too ).

    P.S. Of the 3, only Draal's recasting was explained. I have no idea whether JMS had always intended on recasting the part, or if it was just something that came up.
Working...
