Batman actress Jean Hale dead at 82 from 'natural causes' after decades-long Hollywood career

BATMAN actress Jean Hale has passed away at age 82 of "natural causes" after a 30-year career in TV and movies.

The actress had a rich career in the entertainment industry and was even writing her own script at the time of her death.


Jean Hale passed away on August 3rd in Santa Monica, California, from "natural causes", her family has revealed.

Born in Salt Lake City and raised in Connecticut, she went to college at the University of Utah before moving to New York City where she studied film under Sydney Pollack at the Neighbourhood Playhouse.

While in the city, she put her beauty to good use as she helped pay the bills with contracts at both the Conover and Huntington Hartford agencies.

The mother of three was best known for her role in Like Flint, a 1967 spy spoof where she played opposite James Coburn and Lee J Cobb.

The film star played Lisa, a character who tried to disrupt the patriarchy by brainwashing other women to help her in her efforts.

Jean's career took off that same year when she was cast as Polly, the co-conspirator of the Mad Hatter, in several episodes of season two of ABC’s Batman.

The beautiful blonde also starred in movie titles such as The St Valentine’s Day Massacre, The Oscar and Taggart.

Her television spots included appearances on Hogan’s Heroes, Perry Mason, Hawaii Five-O, The Alfred Hitchcock Hour, and Bonanza, among other series.

The talented star acted up until 1991, with her final role being the 1991 TV movie Lies Before Kisses.

Jean was writing a script for a new film at the time of her death, called Being Jeannie.

The screenplay was based on the true story of a woman who impersonated her in the 1960s, married 10 men across the South in Texas and Oklahoma, and stole their money.

The mother of three met actor Dabney Coleman, known for his roles in Boardwalk Empire and The Towering Inferno, while they were both studying acting at the Neighbourhood Playhouse in New York.

The pair married in 1961 and stayed together for over 20 years until they divorced in 1984.

Jean is survived by her and Coleman’s three children, Kelly, Randy, and Quincy.
