Just for my own understanding, can you clarify what this means, what accounts
are you referring to here, and what is a "companies house?" Does this have
something to do with being a supposed charitable convention?

I have to say that I'm not surprised that this is the case.

I don't have much day to day contact with the cast, I'm afraid, since
everyone's pretty much gone on to do their own things after B5 concluded.
Perhaps others can relay this to the fan clubs of the various actors.

I also try not to get between the cast and their activities.

I try.

Thanks for the info.
