Burt Ward aka ‘Robin’ Receives Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Burt Ward, the actor who portrayed Robin in the 1960s Batman television series, received the 2,683rd star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Ward was honored in a ceremony in front of the Guinness World Records Museum on Hollywood Boulevard where director Kevin Smith and television personalities Maria Menounos and Nancy O’Dell spoke on his behalf.

 

The Batmobile was also on site along with people dressed as characters from the Batman series as Ward exclaimed “Holy turnout!” referencing Robin’s signature catchphrase from the show.

Ward’s star will be placed next to his longtime co-star Adam West, who played Batman and died in 2017 at the age of 88.
