Former Batgirl Yvonne Craig headed off to the great Bat Cave in the sky on Aug. 17, and her “Batman” co-stars Burt Ward and Julie Newmar shared exclusively with The National ENQUIRER how much they’ll mourn her loss.
“As Batgirl, not only was she a terrific actress but a bright, happy, spirited person,” Burt, who played Robin, said.
Yvonne, 78, died at her home in Pacific Palisades, Calif., after a two-year battle with breast cancer.
The actress joined the iconic but campy “Batman” series in 1967.
“Through the years, after ‘Batman,’ she and I remained friends,” Burt, 70, told The ENQUIRER. “I’m going to miss her greatly!”
It isn’t just her fellow caped crusaders who mourn. Julie, now 82, played villainous Catwoman.
She said to us: “I was greatly saddened to hear of her death. She was a very classy woman.”
Yvonne was last on TV as the voice of Grandma on the Nickelodeon cartoon series “Olivia” from 2009 to 2011 – delighting a whole new generation of kids.
Said Julie: “Everyone loved Yvonne!”
