Do you know about 60’s actress Yvonne Craig? She was a pioneer of female superheroes on the small screen.

The 78 yr old died on Monday after a two-year battle with breast cancer. She is survived by husband, Kenneth Aldrich.

Yvonne was best known for originating the role of Batgirl in the 1960s “Batman” TV series.

Let us tell you a bit more about the legend. She began her acting career in the late 1950s and had been a part of TV shows like “Perry Mason”, “Schlitz Playhouse” and the famous “Batman”.2nd annual Comic And Fantasy Creators Convention

She was also fond of ballet dancing and stunt actions.

She once said during an interview, “I meet young women who say Batgirl was their role model. They say it’s because it was the first time they ever felt girls could do the same things guys could do, and sometimes better. I think that’s lovely.”

R.I.P, Yvonne Craig.
