‘Firefly’ Cast Members, Joss Whedon Pay Tribute to Ron Glass (Updated)

Several “Firefly” cast members and series creator Joss Whedon took to social media to eulogize Ron Glass, who died on Friday at age 71.

“His laugh was beyond infectious and his generosity was ever present,” wrote Alan Tudyk wrote, who played Hoban “Wash” Washburne on the series and the subsequent sequel film, “Serenity.”

Glass played Shepherd Derrial Book on the short-lived sci-fi series, which aired for only one season in 2002, and in “Serenity.” His character offered wisdom and spiritual guidance to the crew, some of it influenced by Glass’ own beliefs as a Buddhist.
