Burt Ward first became famous for playing the role of Batman's sidekick Robin on the 1960s TV series, Batman and the film, Batman: The Movie (1966). Before the Californian-born Ward was known as Batman's partner in crime, he was named the world's youngest professional ice skater by As Strange as it Seems magazine – at the age of two. Growing up, Ward was into action-packed comic books and TV shows and by the age of 19, he became the much-loved action hero, Robin in the 1960s series, Batman. Unlike Batman (played by Adam West), Ward performed all his own stunts scenes – this is because his mask revealed more of his facial features, making it impossible for a professional stuntman to take on the dangerous tasks. While enjoying the success of Batman, Ward released a string of songs which included Boy Wonder, a version of Nat King Cole's The Orange Colored Sky and Teenage Bill of Rights. Since Batman, Ward has appeared in over 30 made-for-television movies and has written his autobiography, Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights.
