Sad To Hear Of The Passing of Yvonne Craig aka Batgirl
Mood:  down
Topic: TV Shows

Michael D Hamersky On Comics Is Sad To Mention The Passing Of...
Yvonne Craig
(aka Batgirl on the 1966 Batman TV Show Series!)



TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4048 -   I just read of the passing of Yvonne Craig, who died August 17th of 2015.

I had the fortune of meeting Yvonne a few times at conventions, including the San Diego Comic Con in 1996 with Julie Newmar, (blog #3173), and at the Wizard World Anaheim 2010, (blog #3112).

At the Wizard World Anaheim convention I mentioned the then upcoming book that I had written a chapter for, 'Gotham City 14 Miles', which she expressed interest in.  She then told me of her then recent book, 'From Ballet to the Batcave and Beyond'.  (Photo of her and her book at top right.)

Before Yvonne was 'Batgirl', I had seen her in several Elvis Presley films, and always enjoyed her roles in the films.

She also was 'Marta', the green skinned Orion girl in the Original Star Trek episode 'Whom Gods Destroy'.

Yvonne was definitely a fine actress during her screen career. For more info, please see her Wikipedia entry.

I feel sad about her passing at the age of 78.  I am glad I got to meet her during the years.

My condolences to her family and friends... 

~ Michael
