Michael O’Hare

  1. Bruce Boxleitner, Babylon 5, TV, 1994-1998.    O’Hare missed much work during the opening season buit refused  the offer of his pal, the show’s creator J Michael Straczynski, to delay shooting until he found help for his health problems.  That, he said, wouldn’t be fair  for the cast and crew. The two fiends agreed he’d leave at the end of the first season, using one  of  the scenarist’s “trap door”  ways of integrating “unforeseen changes” without messing with the overall plotlines. Apart from two  Babylon guest slots and a couple of Law & Order gigs,  O’Hare never worked nor was seen in public againb As agreed, it was only after his death that Straczynski, explained  O’Hare’s debilitating schizophrenia.
