There are very secondary actors who, for a great opportunity in a successful movie or series and their good work in it, gain a little hole in the emotional memory of the viewers. Is what happened to Croatian actress Mira Furlan (1955-2021), who has died of complications from the West Nile virus at the age of sixty-five. Her most recognizable roles are undoubtedly that of Minbarian ambassador Delenn in Babylon 5 (J. Michael Straczynski, 1993-1998) and, above all, Danielle Rousseau, the strange inhabitant of the island of Lost (JJ Abrams, Damon Lindelof and Jeffrey Lieber, 2004-2010). But he also participated in relevant works and a couple that are still pending to be released.
For example, she plays Ankica Vidmar in the film Dad is on a business trip (Emir Kusturica, 1985), nominated for an Oscar and winner at the Cannes Film Festival. He lends his voice to Silver Sable in the animated series Spider-man (Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, 1994-1998). And she plays Dina Risi in the episode “South by Southwest” (6×17) of Navy: Criminal Investigation (Donald P. Bellisario and Don McGill, since 2003), to Lucija in Cirkus Columbia (Danis Tanovic, 2010), to Velida in To be born again (Sergio Castellitto, 2012) or the traveler in A pinch of magic (John-Paul Nickel, since 2015). And the last works of Mira Furlan were her Jovana of the short Pred nama and his Agnes from the long Burning at Both Ends (Aleksandar Adzic, Matthew Hill, and Landon Johnson, 2020).
