The Voice of Minnie Mouse Has Died

Disney's Minnie Mouse Celebrates Her 90th Anniversary With Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame
 

Russi Taylor, the actress who gave voice to Minnie Mouse for more than three decades, has died in Glendale, California. She was 75.

How cute is this: Russi was married to the man who voiced Mickey Mouse opposite her, Wayne Allwine, from 1991 until his death in 2009. 

She became the official voice of Minnie in 1986, beating out more than 200 competitors who auditioned. She voiced Minnie across Disney projects in film, television, and theme parks, including the movie "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" and the TV show "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse".

She also provided voices for many other minor Disney characters and for several smaller characters on "The Simpsons", including Bart's nerdy classmate Martin Prince.
