Crap. :(

A sidekick who did eventually become Emperor though.

Always liked Vir, especially when he ran out of patience.

RIP.

Originally found him very annoying and stupid, but the growth he had as a character is one of the showing examples of what made that show so good.

Not surprised diabetes is it.

I don't know about you, but something tells me Peter Jurasik might be the last living cast member, or one of the last at least. If he does turn out to be then I think it'll be safe to say that the curse was real, that some cosmic humour was played out having Londo be the last.

That would be interesting.

But there is a ways to go yet for him to be the last one standing. Still alive:
- Peter Jurasik
- Bill Mumy
- Bruce Boxleitner
- Mira Furlan
- Claudia Christian
- Walter Koenig
- Tracy Scoggins
- Patricia Tallman

Vir does get his wish eventually. :D

Mmm, Claudia Christian and Tracy Scoggins. As they were then obviously.

Man, you're not lying about the curse.
I'm going to go ahead and call it: Peter Jurasik is going to be the last one left standing. Maybe Mira Furlan.

EDIT:
Beastro beat me like a rented mule.
