RIP Russi Taylor: A list of the voice actress' most-loved characters

TRIBUTES FLOODED in over the weekend for veteran voice actress Russi Taylor, who passed away on Sunday 28 July aged 75.

The death of the actress, most well-known for playing the voice of Disney’s Minnie Mouse and several characters on The Simpsons, prompted an outpouring of love by friends and fans alike.

It is often only when a voice actor dies that their long list of well-loved characters comes to light as common public knowledge.

Now, people are astounded that their favourite Simpson’s character shares a voice with other beloved personas—such as Ferny in Irish/American children’s show, 'Jakers! The Adventures of Pigglywinks'.

Famous voice actress Tara Strong, who worked with Ms Taylor on the show, offered her condolences on Twitter over the weekend.

To celebrate Ms Taylor’s life and career, below is a list of some of her most well-known characters—did you know all these cartoons shared the same talented voice?

1. Minnie Mouse.

Ms Taylor's most famous character needs no introduction-- but a lot of people don't know that the voices of Mickey and Minnie were married in real life, until Wayne Allwine's death in 2009.

2.Martin Prince

Ms Taylor played a myriad of Simpson's characters, including Uter "Don't make me run, I'm full of chocolate" Zorker, but it is super-nerd Martin Prince who will be the show's biggest loss.

3. Pebbles Flintstone

The daughter of Fred and Wilma, Pebbles had a long list of voice actors over the years, but Ms Taylor sticks out as one of the best.

5.Queen Rosedust

Before 'My Little Pony''s extremely successful reboot in the 2000's, it was a beloved 80's children's show. Ms Taylor voiced the queen of the Flutter ponies, Rosedust.

6.Huey, Dewey and Louie

The actress voiced Donald Duck's three troublesome nephews all at once.

7. Duchess

It's not often such a sweetly-voiced actress could pull off playing a villain, but Ms Taylor perfectly portrayed the scheming Duchess the Cat in 1995's smash hit 'Babe'.

It's always a tragedy to lose such a talented person, but many are taking refuge in the fact that Minnie and Mickey Mouse are now reunited once more.
