Stars from all walks of life have come out to share their condolences of the infamous Batman legend, with Julie Newmar, Ben Affleck, Conan O’Brien, Seth MacFarlane, and many more paying their respects.
“Family Guy has lost its mayor, and I have lost a friend. Adam West was a joy to work with, and the kind of guy you always wanted to be around. His positivity, good nature, and sense of fun were undeniable, and it was always a big jolt of energy when he walked in to record the reveal. He knew comedy, and he knew humanity.”
And Burt Ward, who played Robin in West’s original TV sitcom series Batman, also remembered his co-star with a statement of commemoration:
“I am devastated at the loss of one of my very dearest friends. Adam and I had a special relationship for more than 50 years. We shared some of the most fun periods of our lives together; our families have deep enjoy and respect for each other. This is a terribly unexpected loss of my lifelong pal, I will forever miss him. There are several fine actors who have portrayed Batman in movies, in my eyes there was only one real Batman and that is and ever will be Adam West; He was truly the Bright Knight.”
