Honing his acting talent in Julliard's drama division, Kevin Conroy allied himself with future greats such as his roommate, Robin Williams. Ironically, Conroy was first set to share a dorm with future star of the Superman movies, Christopher Reeve.
After he graduated, Conroy soon found, like many others, that finding work as an actor was hard. He took roles in plays and bit parts in television shows. He later went down to San Diego, California to star in Hamlet and A Midsummer Nights Dream. From there, he nearly landed a part on NBC's sitcom Wings, which he lost to Tim Daly who would go on to voice Superman in the animated series.
Most notably in his career, Kevin Conroy became the tenure voice actor for Batman in the DC Animated Universe. He provided the voice for Batman in all of the subsequent DC animated shows including Batman The Animated Series, Batman Beyond and many others. He also voiced the Dark Knight in most DC Animated Movies: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Batman & Mr. Freeze: Sub Zero, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, Superman, Batman: Public Eniemies and many more.
Over the years, Conroy developed a sort of familiarity and camaraderie with Batman co-star Mark Hamill, most famous in DC as the quintessential voice of the Joker. After the shows ran their course, the two reunited once again to reprise their roles as the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime in the popular game Batman Arkham Asylum.
