Popular character actor Michael Ansara passed away today in his California home at the age of 91. The actor's career spanned over sixty years notably playing the Klingon Kang in the original Star Trek series (a role he later reprised on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager). However, cartoon fans will ever know him eternally as the voice of Mr. Freeze from Batman: The Animated Series (he'd reprise the role for the animated movie Batman: Sub Zero, The New Batman Adventures, and Batman: Beyond).
This reporter also remembers the actor for his one episode guest appearance on Babylon 5 as a technomage and acting along side John Wayne in the movie, The Comancheros. Still, THE role for him will always be as Mr. Freeze from BTAS, perfectly capturing the tragedy of the character and becoming a fan favorite of the series:
