Date of Birth : Sep 4th 1973
American actor and martial artist, best known for playing Tommy Oliver in Power Rangers (1993-1997, 2004, and 2005 with 243 total episode appearances). Frank appeared in the most Power Rangers episodes: 258 character appearances and 243 actual appearances. He also appeared in the most seasons: seven total (Mighty Morphin [3 seasons], Zeo, Turbo, Wild Force, and Dino Thunder). Jason David Frank made it clear he wanted to leave and there was a lot of discussion on how to go forward, keeping the originals and making Adam red plus a new character or a whole new team. Johnny said he saw in the newspaper an? actor’s call for new rangers but Catherine has said recently they all finally just decided to move on from the show. Frank came back to Power Rangers in the special 10th anniversary episode titled “Forever Red” in Power Rangers Wild Force (2002, reuniting with Austin St. John). Frank has also worn the most different colors of the Power Rangers suits (green, white, red and black).
Frank was supposed to be the lead character Ryan Steele in VR Troopers (originally called “Cybertron”) and shot a pilot episode before being called back to Power Rangers. According to both Frank and Brad Hawkins, Hawkins was to replace Frank originally as the White Ranger on Power Rangers. However, due to Frank’s popularity with Ranger fans, it was decided that he would continue on as White Ranger while Hawkins would take over on Troopers.
