Michael Gough Has Passed Away

March 17, 2011 / Posted by:

Michael Gough, who you probably know as Alfred Pennyworth in both of Tim Burton’s Batman movies as well as those other two bat shit shows we won’t talk about, has died at the age of 94.

Some fun facts I learned while reading Michael Gough’s Wikipedia page is that he was married to Polly from Doctor Who once and was in a bunch of Burton movies including Sleepy Hollow, Alice in Wonderland and Corpse Bride. Before Michael raised his silver wing brows as Alfred in the Batman movies, he used his thespian skills in several episodes of Doctor Who and Out of Africa.

Rest in peace, Michael… You are now with the butler angels who are serving you martinis on a silver platter in heaven.
