Apparently she died last month.

 

How are people supposed to maintain a celebrity deathlist if their publicists take so long announce things like this?

ZOINKS!

 

I had no idea there was another Daphne voice....Stefanianna Christopherson was the only one I knew of, and she was going to be a sneaky pick in one pool or another.  Looks like we are tapped out on Daphne deaths anytime soon, oh well.

Was there something I missed, cause I'm looking back on her and I'm not finding anything for her...

Great shame. So many knew so little about her, but she was so big a part of so many childhoods. Only Velma & Fred left now.

A good question and one that reminds me that the only way a dead pool like the Deathrace survives is because the team captains are the eyes and ears for me sometimes.

Also, because of the Hewlett (sp?) Rule?

Canadian-born Alan Bleviss, who swayed the American people as the signature voice of the Democratic Party and lent gravitas to hundreds of movie trailers and TV commercials, has died. He was 76.

Bleviss died Dec. 30 in New York City after a long battle with lung cancer, his daughter Sarah Jenny Bleviss told The Hollywood Reporter.

Classic movie lovers will know his sonorous, honeyed voice from one-minute movie trailers for Scarface, Dirty Dancing and On Golden Pond, as the voice of Enterprise rental cars commercials and as a host of other blue-chip advertisers like AT&T and American Express.

Foray's death also made me wonder - who becomes the oldest living voice actor, only counting those primarily known as VAs? I think the answer is Doug Young, a Hanna-Barbera regular for minor roles during the 1960s (one of his few title characters being Doggie Daddy) who was born in 1919 and very low profile but seemingly still alive. Mark Evanier did a radio chat with him a decade ago so I'd assume if he went Evanier's blog would make mention of it, albeit very unlikely he QOs.

 

Douggie deaddy.

 

ETA seems he was also the last surviving non-guest voice to appear on The Flintstones. For guest voices Ann-Margret, James Darren, Leo De Lyon, and most of the Beau Brummels are all still living.

William Phipps is the last remaining voice actor from Cinderella, I make it. Could be a nice "four people score points from...." in next year's DDP.

 

No one found their Prince Charming for this year's DDP, but William Phipps is dead regardless:

War Of The Worlds and Lust For Life among his credits on IMDB.

 

No guarantee of a QO, I'd say....

It's been mentioned on two threads, so it must be true now :lol:

He was the last living credited cast member of Cinderella if I'm not mistaken.
