LONDON (AP) - Michael Gough, the British actor best known for playing Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred in a series of Batman movies, has died at age 94.

Gough appeared in more than 150 movies and television shows, including British science-fiction show “Doctor Who.” He died of old age at home in England on Thursday, surrounded by family, his ex-wife Anneke Wills said through her agent.

Wills said in an obituary posted on the Doctor Who website: “As his body was deteriorating this week, he said that he wanted to hang on for St. Patrick’s Day. And he did, just. In the end … there is only love.”

Gough remains best remembered for his role as Alfred Pennyworth in the Batman franchise, starring opposite Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney.
