Michael Gough was an actor best-known for his appearances in the Tim Burton Batman films, Sleepy Hollow, Corpse Bride and Alice in Wonderland but he had a long and distinguished career beginning in the 1940s. Gough was born in Malaysia in 1917 and passed away today.
We are fortunate that so many of Gough's memorable performances have been captured on film and television. He's appeared in a wide range of films from horror to Shakespeare and he was truly wonderful as Alfred Pennyworth in the Batman films. He will be sorely missed.
