Power Rangers Cast Shares Tributes To Jason David Frank

Over the weekend, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers star Jason David Frank reportedly took his own life at the age of 49. Frank originated the role of Tommy Oliver in 1993, and he was one of the most popular actors in the franchise. That popularity extended to his fellow cast members as well. Via Deadline, several members of the Power Rangers cast shared their tributes to Frank.

Austin St. John, who played the original Red Ranger, Jason Lee Scott, offered a fairly recent pic of himself, David Yost, and Frank, with a heartfelt message to his friend.

Yost, who played the original Blue Ranger, Billy Cranston, added his own message with photos of himself and Frank from across three decades.

Amy Jo Johnson, the original Pink Ranger/Kimberly Hart, portrayed the love interest of Frank’s Tommy for multiple seasons. They remained close after they left the series, which is illustrated her message.

Walter Jones, the Black Ranger/Zack Taylor, added a tribute of his own.
