Batman's 'butler' Michael Gough dies aged 94 (AP)Source: AP 2 hours, 24 minutes ago Comments

LONDON - Michael Gough, the British actor best known for playing Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred in a series of Batman movies, has died at age 94.

[Image Can Not Be Found]

Gough appeared in more than 150 movies and television shows, including British science-fiction show "Doctor Who." He died of old age at home in England on Thursday, surrounded by family, his ex-wife Anneke Wills said through her agent.

Wills said in an obituary posted on the Doctor Who website: "As his body was deteriorating this week, he said that he wanted to hang on for St. Patrick's Day. And he did, just. In the end ... there is only love."

Gough remains best remembered for his role as Alfred Pennyworth in the Batman franchise, starring opposite Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney.

Thank you Mr. Gough for your great work in the early Batman movies. One of the shining lights that never dimmed in a sinking franchise. Rest In Peace my good man. :thumbup: I raise toast to of Bailey's Irish Creme, in honor of you having your wish of holding on to see St. Pattrick's Day.

What if it were true?

I liked him, never knew his name. I'll settle for a ripe ol age of 94, he had a good life. RIP and Batman will not be the same without him.
