Yvonne Craig


Born - 16 May 1937, Taylorville, Illinois, USA
Died - 17 August 2015

Lissome, dark-haired, very pretty and vivacious actress, who trained with the Ballet Russe, then went to Hollywood in her early twenties, co-starring with Elvis Presley in two films and later playing Batgirl in TV's cult Batman series. With her film career over, she went into real estate. Her perky features were first seen in Eighteen and Anxious (1957) and she was soon a Hollywood regular: Gidget (1959), Drum Crazy (1959), The Young Land (1959), High Time (1960), 7 Women from Hell (1961), By Love Possessed (1961), It Happened at the World's Fair (1963), Kissin' Cousins (1964), Company of Cowards (1964), Quick Before It Melts (1965), Ski Party (1965), One Spy Too Many (1966), In Like Flint (1967), How to Frame a Figg (1971), Jarrett (1973) and, much later, Diggin' Up Business (1990), her last. She died from breast cancer and cancer of the liver. Her autobiography was called From Ballet to the Batcave and Beyond.
