Power Ranger star Jason David Frank passes away at 49

Frank's manager, Justine Hunt, announced his passing in a statement on Sunday.

She requested respect for the family's privacy but did not specify the cause of death or the date of death.

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 joined the team as the Green Ranger and rose to fame as one of the show's most well-liked characters.

Though his role wasn't intended to be permanent, Frank was later brought back as the White Ranger and the leader of the team.
