Batman actor Kevin Conroy has died at the age of 66

Kevin Conroy, known as the voice of Batman, has died at the age of 66.

He first played Bruce Wayne 30 years ago in Batman, The Animated Series and has appeared in a number of television shows, feature films, and video games.

He also voiced the superhero in the video games Arkham Knight and Arkham City and also appeared in the 2019 episode of Batwoman.

His agent, Stephen Niebert, told the BBC:

“The voice over community has lost one of the greats. I’ve been devastated to have worked with him for over 25 years.”

Conroy was described as a “dear friend” by casting director Andrea Romano.

“Kevin’s warm heart, sweet deep laughter and pure love of life will be with me forever,” she added.

Star Wars actor Mark Hamill, who played Batman’s antagonist Joker in the Batman animation and video game, said Conroy was “one of my favorite people on the planet” in his statement, adding that he “was as loving as his brother.”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2017, Conroy said he was inspired to voice Batman from the 1930 movie The Scarlet Pimpernel.

“I played Bruce Wayne as a kind of playful jest to counter the annoying nature of Batman.”
