    I had only heard about Thuy's death a year or two ago, during the time of her death I was in transition and didn't watch TV much at all, on top of that my viewing of Power Rangers had severely dropped off since Power Rangers in Space so I missed the episode dedicated to her. She was a great actress and had the potential to be even more, its so sad to see things like that go out with such a whisper. Remember her guys and girls, Thuy Trang will always have her place in television history, and will always be close to those who remember her short lived, but Powerific legacy :)moreless
