Power Rangers star Jason David Frank dies aged 49

Jason David Frank, who played Green Power Ranger Tommy Oliver in the 1990s children’s series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, has died. He was 49.

Jones wrote: “My heart is saddened to lose another member of our special family.

Thuy Trang, who played the original Yellow Power Ranger, died in a car accident in 2001, at the age of 27.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, about five teenagers tasked with saving Earth from evil, debuted on Fox in 1993 and went on to become a pop culture phenomenon.

Early in the first season, Frank’s Tommy Oliver was first seen as a villain, brainwashed by the evil Rita Repulsa. But soon after, he was inducted into the group as the Green Ranger and became one of the most popular characters on the show.

Although his role was not intended to last, Frank was later brought back as the White Ranger and leader of the team.

As a martial arts practitioner, Frank fought in several mixed martial arts matches in 2009 and 2010.
