Yvonne Craig passed away on August 16, 2015.
Today is a sad one for Bat-fans. News broke today that Yvonne Craig, who played the first Batgirl on the TV series, Batman, died on Monday, August 16, 2015 due to complications from breast cancer. She was 78.

Starting out with a career in ballet, Craig appeared on Star Trek as a green Orion slave girl, starred in two Elvis Presley pictures (It Happened at the World's Fair and Kissin' Cousins) and made a few guest appearances of a variety of TV shows, but she will always be remembered mostly as the third wheel to the Dynamic Duo. She always made a stunning entrance as you can see from the clip below:
