The LA Times reported Ilene Woods, voice of Disney’s Cinderella, died last week at age 81. She was born Jacquelyn Ruth Woods on May 5, 1929, in Portsmouth, N.H. Woods was 18 when Walt asked her to voice Cinderella. When asked in a 2006 interview for Starlog magazine what the best thing was about having been “Cinderella,” she replied: “Oh, I love the idea that after I’m gone, children will still be hearing my voice.” As was her request, no funeral will be held.
