Do you know what Littlefoot's mother, Deloris Van Cartier and Blind Al have in common?

They were all voiced in French by Marie-Christine "Maïk" Darah.

Born February 7, 1954 in Pantin, Seine-Saint-Denis from a Togolese father and a French mother, she grew up to become one the busiest French voice actresses ever, numbering credits in the four digits range. Her voice is easily one of the most recognizable and beloved in the business. She's also had a career on stage and in small supporting roles on the silver screen and TV, but nowhere near her extensive dubbing activity.

She's known for dubbing a pretty sizeable number of African-American actresses, most famously Whoopi Goldberg (and the two of them met at least once). Moreover, if you seek a French voice for a Mama Bear, a Sassy Black Woman, the female equivalent of a Badass Baritone, or even a Cool Old Lady these days, she'll likely be on top of your list.


Some of her dubbing roles include:
