Quote
1 In those moments when I entered the stage, trembling with stage fright and excitement, under those spotlights, I felt that I’d found the one thing that I wanted to do in my life. Nothing could match that flow of adrenaline.
2 Ambassador Delenn is an extraordinary character. She combines so many different traits. She’s tough, but vulnerable… She’s strong, but feminine… She’s a pacifist, but can be militaristic… She has depth and spirituality, but can be funny and light at times… So yes, I think she’s a great role model – not only for women – but for everyone.
3 Babylon 5 is definitely not a fantasy. It is a show that constantly refers to sociological, political, and psychological facts of our present life, and it is that which makes it so valuable, I think.
