Kevin Conroy: Iconic Batman Voice Actor, Dies At 66

(CT NEWS) – Kevin Conroy, who voiced Batman in countless animated TV shows, films, and video games, passed away earlier this year, Warner Bros. confirmed.

In Batman: The Animated Series, Conroy portrayed Bruce Wayne and his superhero alter-ego.

Throughout the years, he returned to various animated TV shows, movies, and video games such as Arkham Knight and Arkham City. In a 2019 episode of Batwoman, he reprised his classic role.

Andrea Romano, who had the pleasure of casting and directing Kevin Conroy, said of the actor,

“Kevin was far more than an actor whom I had the pleasure of casting and directing – he was a good friend for 30+ years whose compassion and generous nature knew no boundaries.”

“I will always remember Kevin Conroy’s kind heart, beautifully deep laugh, and genuine love of life.”

The Hollywood Reporter also received a statement from Mark Hamill, who played The Joker opposite Conroy on several occasions.

“Kevin was perfection,” Hamill said. “I loved him like a brother, and he was one of my favourite people on earth. Throughout everything he did, his decency shone through. My spirits were lifted as soon as I saw or spoke with him.”

Earlier today (November 11), Diane Pershing, who played DC villain Poison Ivy alongside Conroy in Batman: The Animated Series, announced her death on Facebook.

In a letter, she wrote:

“We received sad news yesterday: Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman, passed away. Despite being ill for a while, he spent a lot of time at cons, much to the delight of his fans. Not just by the cast of the series but by his legion of fans worldwide… RIP, friend.”
