Once, when asked how he got the role, he said, "I had never read comics before I was hired for Batman. My agent rang up and said, 'I think you are going to play on "Batman,"' I said 'What is "Batman"?' He said, 'Don't you read the comics?' I said, 'No, never.' He said, 'I think you are going to be Batman's butler.' I said, 'How do I know I want to be Batman's butler?' It was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard of. He said, 'It may be worth over $100,000.' So I said I was Batman's butler."
Sadly, Alan Napier passed away on August 8th, 1988 but lived a good life to the ripe-old age of 85. He will forever be missed. Somehow, I hope he knew that he brought a lot of joy to the world while he was here, may he rest in peace.
OK, as sort of a tribute, up above is an ALFRED WALLPAPER you can use to brighten your desktop. Also, look down below for a funny YouTube clip I found featuring "Alfred vs. The Joker", enjoy.
