Creator: Nancy Cartwright
Best known for her work on The Simpsons, Nancy Cartwright (born 1957) has been doing cartoon voices since Hanna-Barbera's version of Richie Rich in the early 1980s (after being personally trained by the legendary Daws Butler). She is also an animation producer, responsible for NASCAR.com's Web Animation series The Kellys. She has adapted her book, My Life as a 10-Year-Old Boy, into an audiobook and a one-woman stage show.Cartwright has also appeared in live action, including Joe Dante's segment of Twilight Zone: The Movie and the Made-for-TV Movie Marian Rose White, and the American Godzilla movie (which also had Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer of The Simpsons), as well as making a guest appearance on an episode of 24 (the same season, stars Kiefer Sutherland and Mary Lynn Rajskub returned the favor by reprising their roles on 24 for a guest appearance on The Simpsons). Originally, she was going to do voicework on South Park, but turned it down due to its vulgar content. She even was a celebrity guest on Tom Bergeron's Hollywood Squares and Donny Osmond's Pyramid. Outside show business, Cartwright is a prominent member of the Church of Scientology.
