Mae Whitman is actually the voice behind one of Disney’s most beloved cartoon characters, Tinker Bell. The “Good Girls” star first voiced the iconic character in Disney’s 2008 film, “Tinker Bell,” and has voiced the cartoon character multiple times since, including in the 2009 animated film, “Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure,” “Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue,” “Pixie Hollow Games,” “Secret of the Wings,” “Captain Jake and the Neverland Pirates,” “The Pirate Fairy,” and more (via IMDb).
“I love playing Tinker Bell. She’s great. So smart and independent and funny,” Whitman told Entertainment Weekly in 2012. “I’m so happy and excited that I get to play someone like her. She’s a great role model.”
Whitman also revealed to the outlet how she got into voice-over acting, crediting her mom for inspiring her at an early age. “It’s a huge part of my life. My mom [Pat Musick] was a voice-over actress, who has done millions of projects,” she revealed. “I was sort of born into the world of voice-acting and knew everybody who was in this universe. I just love it so much. It’s such an incredibly fun world.”
