The iconic actor, best known for his lead role in the 1960s TV series Batman, passed away on Friday night in Los Angeles after a short battle with leukemia. He was 88. Friends and fans took to social media on Saturday to pay their respects to West.
"Adam set the bar so high for portraying the role of Batman," the 83-year-old actress told ET over the phone. "He was wonderful, spot on, with a twinkle in his eye. He had it all -- looks, charm, intelligence, I could go on and on."
"In conversation, he was very animated and once told me that Batman was the father that everyone wanted!" she added. "I never thought of it that way! He had a great way of playing that 'tongue-in-cheek' nature in so much of the dialogue."
