Sad day for many of us Disney fans.
Russi Taylor, Minnie Mouse’s voice actress since 1986, passed away in her home on Friday. She was 75 years old. The actress not only gave life to the iconic character, but for a lot of 80s and 90s kids, their childhood. I know for my childhood, her voice was everywhere!
In 1991, Taylor married Wayne Allwine, Mickey Mouse’s voice actor. Allwine voiced the mouse from 1977 to until his death in 2009. That’s right! Mickey and Minnie were married in real life too! Then in 2008, t
he pair were inducted as Disney Legends
– a program honoring individuals who made a significant impact on the Disney legacy, for their voice work.
Thanks for the fun times and memories, Russi! May you be with Wayne and rest in peace!
