Kevin Conroy speaks on stage during Batman Beyond 20th Anniversary at New York Comic Con 2019 Day 4 at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on October 06, 2019 in New York City.

Kevin Conroy, the iconic voice of Batman: The Animated Series, died at 66 years old Thursday (November 10) shortly after being diagnosed with cancer, according to a statement made by Warner Bros.

Conroy’s deep and raspy voice shot him to stardom as the title character in the animated series, which ran from 1992 to 1996, according to a statement provided to Warner Bros by Conroy’s spokesperson. He became the quintessential voice of the superhero in almost 60 different productions and video games, including 15 films, highlighted by Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

Mark Hamill, who played the Joker in many of the animated series and films opposite Conroy, said in a statement, “Kevin was perfection. He was one of my favorite people on the planet, and I loved him like a brother. He truly cared for the people around him – his decency shone through everything he did. Every time I saw him or spoke with him, my spirits were elevated.”

Conroy is survived by his husband Vaughn C. Williams, sister Trisha Conroy, and brother Tom Conroy. Memorial services are pending.
