British actor Michael Gough dies at 94

LONDON -- Michael Gough, the British actor best known for playing Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred in a series of Batman movies, has died at age 94.

Gough appeared in more than 150 movies and television shows, including the British science-fiction show "Doctor Who." He died of old age at home in England yesterday, surrounded by family, his ex-wife Anneke Wills said through her agent.

Wills said in an obituary posted on the "Doctor Who" website: "As his body was deteriorating this week, he said that he wanted to hang on for St. Patrick's Day. And he did, just. In the end . . . there is only love."

Gough remains best remembered for his role as Alfred Pennyworth in the Batman franchise of the late 1980s and '90s, starring opposite Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney. -- AP
