Katie Leigh


Born Katherine Leigh, Katie Leigh has been in the voice acting industry ever since she was 23 years old. She has provided voices for characters like Sunni Gummi on “Disney’s Adventures of the Gummi Bears,” Honker Muddlefoot on “Darkwing Duck,” and the US voices of Little Miss Chatterbox, Little Miss Helpful, and Little Miss Daredevil on “The Mr. Men Show.”

Katie Leigh is also known for her voice on radio. On “Adventures in Odyssey,” she has played as the character Connie Kendall. Other actors she has worked alongside with on “Adventures in Odyssey” were the likes of Hal Smith, Alan Young, Andre Stojka, Corey Burton, and Jess Harnell, to name a few. Katie Leigh has also done well in voicing in a few video games. Some examples include her role as the Maharajah on “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” a Soldier on “Lost Odyssey,” and as Millie Chliette on “Star Ocan: First Departure.”

Leigh is a voice artist that I admire and respect. She has worked with actors and actresses that I respect as well. She has worked with actors who have passed on like Lorenzo Music, Bill Scott, and Paul Winchell. She has also worked with voice actors whom I currently respect like Jim Cummings, Joseph J. Terry (also credited as J. W. Terry), June Foray, and Nancy Cartwright.

Currently, Leigh is teaching others how to voice act; showing them that voice acting is more about creating a character vocally rather than just doing a different voice. Katie Leigh is a vocal treasure with a versatile range and unique gift.

One Hit Wonders 5

Bill McFadden

Bill McFadden

Bill McFadden is an actor who was raised in the beautiful Prince Edward Island. He is a one hit wonder because he has voiced in one cartoon. However, in this one show, he is not only the narrator, but also the voice of a character by the name of Sir Roswald on “Eckhart.” He is not only a good voice actor as this character, but also a beautifully voiced narrator.

McFadden is mostly highly regarded as an actor on the screens. He has played a character known as William Plover on the television series, “Emily of New Moon.” He has also appeared in a few TV movies. In 1997’s “Pit Pony,” he played the character Ed O’Neill, and in 2006, he played as a character called Mr. Unger on “A Christmas Wedding.”

McFadden has also appeared on a few stage productions in the entertainment world. Two of the productions he has appeared in are “The Owl and the Pussycat,” and “Dear Liar,” both of which fellow performer Sharlene MacLean worked on together back in 1982.

Bill McFadden has an interesting set of performances and a heart and passion for his pursuits. The first roles I had mentioned (Narrator and Sir Roswald on “Eckhart”) were also coincidentally the first roles I heard him in altogether. In actuality, Sir Roswald is one of my most favorite characters from animation, and McFadden’s voice as him is one of the reasons why I like this character. In conclusion, Bill McFadden is very talented and unique; with such an acting regime, he should continue on with his work for a great deal of time.
