Being the greatest Power Ranger of all time, the most charismatic and beloved by fans seems not to have been enough for Jason David Frank, who played Tommy, the legendary Green Ranger and also the White Ranger. He was going through several personal problems and serious family crises. Frank died last Sunday (20) and, it seems, took his own life.
The actor, always celebrated by fans since the beginning of the series of heroes in the American version, also made several appearances in many seasons of power Rangers, including in the 2017 film. He still participated in conventions around the world, where he was a stamped figure. But this “happy” surface hid a series of serious issues.

This shook the actor a lot, who seems not to have recovered. Nobody knows the reasons for Shayla’s death, but there are those who consider Jason’s constant fights with Tammie, the girl’s mother, one of the triggers.
