After the sad news of Michael Gough’s passing, Tim Burton’s Batman — Michael Keaton, payed his respects to Gough in a statement to THR.
To Mick-my butler, my confidant, my friend, my Alfred, I love you. God bless.
He signed the message, “Michael (Mr. Wayne) Keaton”. As I’m sure you know, Michael Gough played Alfred to Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney. Keaton had the pleasure of working with Gough twice — in 1989’s Batman and again in 1992’s Batman Returns.
