R.I.P. Michael Gough


Actor passes away at 94

Actor Michael Gough has died at the age of 94.

To many, the actor was known as Alfred, Bruce Wayne’s butler, in Tim Burton’s 1989 film Batman. He revisited that role through three more Bat-films, and he saved face in every single one of them.

Horror fans, however, know a different kind of Michael Gough, a man whose career saw him toiling on stage and television, until he appeared in the Hammer Films’ production Horror of Dracula.

This set him on a path through various genre fare which would include Konga, 1962’s The Phantom of the Opera, The Skull, the awesome and bizarre Horror Hospital, The Legend of Hell House (albeit a miniscule part) and, later in his career, Sleepy Hollow.

The man brought class to whatever production he was a part of and he will be missed.
