“Batman” Famous U.S Actor, Adam West Dies at 88

The U.S actor Adam West, the star of the 1960s hit TV series Batman, has died aged 88. West died peacefully in Los Angeles after a brief battle with leukaemia, his family said in a statement.

His tongue-in-cheek portrayal of Batman and the superhero’s alter ego Bruce Wayne won a cult following. However, West later struggled to find acting work. He most recently played a character in the animated comedy Family Guy.

In a signature role, West played Bruce Wayne and his alter ego, the crime-fighting, costumed Batman, a popular comics character who came to life on the ABC-TV series. The show, with a catchy — some might say aggravating — theme song, earned a cult following.

The series lasted three seasons and enjoyed a long afterlife in syndication.
West later supplied the voice of Mayor Adam West, the oddball leader of Quahog, Rhode Island, on the animated series “Family Guy.”
