Biography

Date of Birth 23 November 1917, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Height 5' 9" (1.75 m) Michael Gough is an English character actor. He is perhaps best known to international audiences from his recurring role as Alfred Pennyworth in four Batman movies, beginning with Batman (1989). Gough made his film debut in 1947 in Blanche Fury, and has since appeared extensively on British television. He has guest-starred on the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who, most notably as the villain in the serial The Celestial Toymaker. He also appeared in the Doctor Who story Arc of Infinity as Councillor Hedin. He was once married to Anneke Wills, who played the Doctor's companion Polly. He has cult status among horror fans, because of his frequent appearances in sixties British horror films such as Hammer's Dracula (US: Horror of Dracula, 1958) and The Phantom of the Opera (1962); and Anglo-Amalgamated's Horrors of the Black Museum (1960). His later roles as Alfred Pennyworth for director Tim Burton, including Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992). He also reprised his role as Alfred in the Joel Schumacher Batman films, Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997). He worked for Burton again in 1999's Sleepy Hollow and 2005's Corpse Bride. He won Broadway's 1979 Tony Award as Best Actor (Featured Role - Play) for Bedroom Farce. He was also nominated in the same category in 1988 for Breaking the Code
