This weekend, Hollywood lost a true TV icon in the form of "Power Rangers" star Jason David Frank, who died by suicide at the age of 49. For decades, Frank was known for his role as green (and white, red and black) ranger Tommy Oliver on the long-running show, and he was greatly loved by fans. Many of those devotees have since flooded social media to memorialize the late actor and MMA fighter. A vast number of PR alums have also spoken out and paid tribute, and that includes franchise OGs like Amy Jo Johnson and Austin St. John.

Those who religiously watched (and dressed like the) "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" back in the ‘90s undoubtedly know that one particular person was the apple of Tommy’s eye. It was pink ranger Kimberly Hart, who was played by Amy Jo Johnson. Her and Jason David Frank’s characters embarked on a romance but, in real life, the two actors struck up a friendship. They even had a joint cameo in the 2017 "Rangers" movie, one of which showed Frank sporting an old-school look. With all of this in mind, it was only fitting that Johnson took to Instagram to pay tribute to her friend and colleague.
