Jeff Conaway (1950-2011)

Former Babylon 5 co-star Jeff Conaway died May 27. He had been in a coma for a couple of weeks, the immediate result of pneumonia after a history of drug abuse.

On B5 Conaway played Zack Allan, a security officer eventually promoted to Chief of Security upon the resignation of his predecessor Michael Garibaldi.

Conaway’s other genre credit was the 1984 fantasy spoof series Wizards and Warriors playing Prince Erik Greystone. The show only lasted eight episodes.

Obviously his best-known roles were in the movie Grease and the television series Taxi.
