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."
