British actor Michael Gough, probably best known for his role as Alfred Pennyworth in the Tim Burton/Joel Schumacher Batman franchise, has passed away. he was 94.
Gough’s first film role was the 1947 Blanche Fury, but took a stab at the horror genre in 1958 with Hammer Films’ Horror of Dracula, alongside legends Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.
He also took roles in the 1962 The Phantom of the Opera, along with Konga, The Skull, Horror Hospital and one of my all time favorite horror films, The Legend of Hell House. He also starred in Burton’s 1999 Sleepy Hollow.
