Actor Known for 'Babylon 5' Dead at 60 THR

A veteran TV actor best known for his role on the science-fiction series "Babylon 5" has died, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Michael O'Hare, who portrayed Commander Jeffrey Sinclair on the first season of the series, died Friday at 60.

O'Hare had suffered a heart attack five days earlier, the story notes.

The actor left the show after its first season in what the report calls a cryptic exit, although the show's creator said the separation was "mutual, amicable and friendly," the story notes. O'Hare returned for a few episodes in the show’s second and third seasons, helping to wrap up his character's story, the piece adds.

"Babylon 5" aired for four seasons on Prime Time Entertainment Network and for a final season on TNT, spanning 1994-1998.

O'Hare also appeared on TV shows including “Law & Order,” "Kate & Allie" and the soap opera "One Life to Live."
