Mira has been a symbol for strength and courage and a very talented actress indeed. Her presence in a series like "Babylon 5" and later, also in "Lost" made everything much more worthwhile to watch.
She went away far too early from us, but her spirit and her memories will always remain in our hearts and minds.
I believe that right now, she has rejoined her friends, colleagues and loved ones who did precede her in that long voyage among the wonders of this wast universe of ours.
She always admired the stars, and by now she is indeed among them and enjoying every moment.
She was the light for many, and into the light she has returned, shining brighter than ever before.
I don't want to mourn her, but rather celebrate her life, because it is in life that wisdom lives on.
Her memory will always inspire us to do better and survive the many struggles confronting us.
Thank you Mira, now you have returned to the stars from whence we all came from.
Safe sailing.

She was my favorite character in one of my favorite series. At a Babyon 5 reunion show. The cast was asked to give a remembrance of Andreas Katsulas and she said she would remember him smoking in his G'Kar costume. I thought that was one of the most non cliche statements by an actor. Funny and insightful to her own character. A Fan and admirer of what she went through to follow her chosen profession.

One of the mosy memorable actors that I have ever seen . Her role on Babylon 5 made every scene she was in a challenge as even the leads could not be at quite the level that she achieved in every performance. I can hardly believe she has already departed however I will await her entrance , Stage Left , in Heaven where we surely will see her ............

Mira...Mira...Mira...
I am struggling to find the words to capture my thoughts and emotions. I can't.
For, Mira was so much more than any words will ever express. She was a breath, a sound, a light that was there.
The presence.
She was the grand heroine of film screen and also, that fragile field flower that winds buffeted hither and yon.
The presence.
No big stories, theories, narratives... no discourse on anything. Just that presence that you could not but feel grateful for.
We worked together on her music CD, on her stage, and yes, we worked together on life - her and mine. For, we just were. Together. As siblings or best buddies would be - enormous love and enormous respect.
My love goes to the love of her life and my dear comrade, Goran; my love goes to her son whom I last held in my arms when he was just two.
I already feel it, I am walking a little slower; my thoughts are a little less clear.
So be it.
My dearest fragile wisp, this is it.

Mira was a gentle, complicated creature, philosopher. Although, I didn't knew her personally, it was obvious to me that she was special and unique. I hope she find peace.

Quote spoken by Delenn of Mir (played by Mira Furlan) on TV series Babylon 5 (The Candle scene): "... the flame reminds us that that life is precious as each flame is unique. When it goes out, it's gone forever. And there will never be another quite like it."
Mira's new flame now shines "where no shadows fall"

I was blessed to get the chance to meet Mira on a couple of occasions. Although I find it hard to find words I will always remember the kindness she showed my brother and I. My sincerest thoughts are with her family and the ones close to her. Our Heart goes out to you all. May Mira's candle of light burn bright and help comfort you all.

Furlan began her acting career in her home of Zagreb, in the former Yugoslavia. She and her husband, director Goran Gaji, immigrated to the U.S. in 1991 amid the Croatian War of Independence. There, she joined the Actors Studio and began getting U.S. acting jobs, landing a notable one when she was cast as Minbari Ambassador Delenn on “Babylon 5” in 1993. Furlan was among the central characters of the show’s ensemble cast for its entire five-season run. Several years later, she landed a notable recurring role on the hit series “Lost,” playing shipwrecked scientist Danielle Rousseau, who was a key part of the island’s weird mysteries. Furlan also appeared on an episode of “NCIS.” Later in her career, she frequently returned to Croatia to act in films and TV shows.
