Fan Comments

Patricia Tallman was one of my favorite actors on Babylon 5, and meeting her was one of the highlights of my high school years (I think hers was the last con I went to before college, though I could be wrong). I remember being in high school co-running the B5Teens mailing list (oh, the days of mailing lists!) and fan club, and I still to this day have my B5Teens t-shirt, signed by the 8 of us members who'd been there from the beginning AND Patricia Tallman.[2]
