Profile Bio Text
Burt Ward (born Bert John Gervis, Jr., on July 6, 1945) is an American television actor and activist. He is best known for his work as Robin, the "Boy Wonder," in the 1960s television series Batman. The show, which aired on ABC from 1966 to 1968, starred Ward as Robin with Adam West as the title character. After the end of Batman, Ward found himself hard-pressed to find other acting jobs. He re-emerged to act in more than 30 obscure made-for-television and softcore porn films such as Virgin High. Although reportedly wanted by the producer, Ward did not get the Dustin Hoffman part in The Graduate because he chose to renew his contract with the Batman TV show and the studio (20th Century Fox) did not want to dilute his popularity and identification as Robin. Ward did, however, appear in numerous reunions with co-star Adam West. The most memorable included reprising their roles as Batman and Robin on a short-lived animated television series called The New Adventures of Batman, the theater show Legends of the Superheroes, and the 2003 television movie, Return to the Batcave: The Misadventures of Adam and Burt.
Ward`s first wife was Bonney Lindsey, daughter of conductor Mort Lindsey. Their daughter Lisa Ann Ward was born in 1966, and became a mother in 1991. He was briefly married to actress Kathy Kersh and to model Mariana Torchia. Since 1990 Ward has been married to Tracy Posner. Their daughter Melody Lane Ward was born on February 16, 1991.
