#RIP Yvonne Craig

Aw man, what is this? I start working this morning, check up online and I found.. this! Today is a sad day...

I just learned one of my favorite vintage actresses just died...

Yvonne Craig, whom most of you will probably remember as the original Batgirl from the Batman '66 show, just passed away at the age of 78.

"Yvonne Craig died at her home in Pacific Palisades, California, on August 17, 2015, after a long battle with breast cancer."

Her most memorable roles are no doubt her role as Barbara Gordon on Batman and a memorable green girl, the "Orion slave girl" named Marta, from Star Trek. She used to do all of her own stunts and motorcycle riding as Batgirl.

She was a remarkable actress and will always be remembered by countless fans all over the world.

She is survived by her husband, Kenneth, and her nephews, Todd and Christopher.

RIP Yvonne Craig. You were a great legendary classy lady.

Today is a very sad day indeed...
