Farewell Yvonne Craig 1937-2015

TV and movie actress Yvonne Craig has passed away at the age of 78 due to complications from breast cancer. She was a ballet dancer before breaking into acting and appeared in two movies with Elvis Presley. Yvonne was best known as playing the original Batgirl Barbara Gordon, daughter of Commissioner Gordon, on the 1966 Batman TV series in its third and final season. She was basically third wheel and provided the edge whenever Batman and Robin are stacked with odds against them. Batgirl would disappear without Batman and Robin knowing and they don’t know each others’ identities. Yvonne also played an green-skinned Orion slave girl named Marta in a Star Trek episode. She appeared in several movies and TV, including the Six Million Dollar Man. Over the years, she did voiceovers, traveled all over the world, and did real estate. She has done Batman conventions over the years with her Batman co-stars until a few years ago. Yvonne Craig will be missed by the showbiz and superhero community worldwide.
