Russi Taylor, voice of Minnie Mouse
Entertainment Live: Russi Taylor, Disney’s official voice of Minnie Mouse for more than three decades, has died, the entertainment giant announced Saturday. She was 75.
Taylor, who was prone to giggles just like the character she voiced, captured the heart and sound of Mickey Mouse’s counterpart on TV, in cartoons and film, and at theme parks. “Minnie Mouse lost her voice with the passing of Russi Taylor,” Bob Iger,
chairman and chief executive of The Walt Disney Company, said in a statement.
“For more than 30 years, Minnie and Russi worked together to entertain millions around the world a partnership that made Minnie a global icon and Russi a Disney Legend beloved by fans everywhere. “We take comfort in the knowledge that her work will continue to entertain and inspire for generations to come,” Iger said.
They wed in 1991 but generally “kept it quiet. We didn’t want it to be about Mickey and Minnie being married. It was about Wayne and Russi being married. We had the best time. We laughed a lot. We were always singing. We always had music in the house.”
