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.
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.
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.
