  • Frank became known for his recurring role as Tommy Oliver on Power Rangers.

The hearts of an entire generation bled when the news broke on Sunday night. Actor and arguably the most famous Power Ranger of all time, Jason Frank David, has died at the age of 49. This is reported by the American magazine «TMZ». The California native died at his home in Texas, according to his representative Justine Hunt. As “TMZ” further reports, the cause of death is said to be suicide.

Power Rangers from head to toe

Frank is best known for his role as Tommy Oliver on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers in 1993. In it, he played the green ranger in the first season, who fought first the bad guys and then the good guys, only to become the leader as a white ranger after starting from the second season.

He wore the white hero suit until the end of the third season and in one movie. After that, the MMPR production came up with a new story. The “Power Rangers ZEO” was born. Frank again assumed the role of leader and became the red ranger. This remained with him in the adaptation of “Power Rangers Turbo”, both in the series and in the second film.

Then in 2004, he returned as a black superhero in “Power Rangers Dino Thunder.” In between, he’s graced the franchise time and time again with guest appearances. Frank was also a talented wrestler in real life. He was a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter.

Grief for the loss of another family member

Walter Emanuel Jones (51), who then played the black Power Ranger, wrote on Instagram: “My heart is heavy to have lost another member of our special family.”

Jones is referring to the tragic death of actress Thuy Trang. She died in a car accident in 2001 at the age of 27. In the original ’90s series, she played the yellow Power Ranger.

Frank not only leaves numerous fans around the world, his family and friends, but his four children also mourn the “Power Rangers” star. He is survived by three children from his first marriage, sons Hunter and Jacob and daughter Skye, and his daughter Jenna from his second marriage.
