Burt Ward is an American actor and activist with a net worth of $20 million. He is best known for portraying the role of Robin, the sidekick of Batman in the Television series Batman from 1966 to 1968.

He also played the same character in Batman's theatrical release, the 1977 animated series and two animated featured films.

Ward was required to perform many of his own stunts filming the first batman series. This was a cost saving strategy by the production, and he later found out that he was being paid minimum wage for an actor. 

His remuneration only amounted to $350 per week in the first shooting stages, later increasing to $600, which eventually added up to his net worth. 

The series only lasted 120 episodes due to high production cost, but their roles were reprised in the 20th Century Fox film Batman: The Movie on July 30, 1966. It was the first adaptation of batman in a featured film and raised a box office collection of $1.7 million in that time. 

The movie was a milestone in the superhero genre, and gave rise to countless future batman movies that starred actors such as George Clooney and as the most recent, Robert Pattinson.

After the batman movies, he found it difficult to get any other roles. He collaborated with West on many latter TV works including The New Adventures of Batman in 1977 and Legend of The Superheroes in 1979. 

His latest appearances were as voice roles in animated featured films Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders and Batman vs Two-face in 2016 and 2017 respectively. 

He has written two books that detail his life Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights and Boy Wonder: 12.
