Yvonne Craig Passes Away at 78, Remembered in Vintage ‘Batman’ Clip

Yvonne Craig, TV’s original Batgirl, passed away after losing a two-year battle to breast cancer.

Craig’s family announced the somber news on her personal website revealing that the actress had been undergoing chemotherapy for metastasized breast cancer that spread to her liver, which in turn, weakened her immune system.

“This didn’t dampen her sense of humor or her spirit, she intended to fight and win this battle. In the end, her mind still wanted to fight but her body had given up.”

The post states that Craig made the best of her last months, feeling that she “lived a wonderful life and was blessed in many ways.” She had traveled the world, excelled in ballet, and contributed to numerous philanthropic efforts. Craig had also appeared in episodes of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Star Trek.

Her family asks that you celebrate Yvonne “in your own way” and to remember her by the work that she has left behind.

Thus, watch the bombshell stun in a beach-themed episode of Batman in the video featured above.
