On Friday, Minnie Mouse joined Mickey in the place that cartoon voice-over actors go when they die.
Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie for over 30 years, died this weekend in Glendale, Calif., according to a press release from the Walt Disney Co.
She was married to Wayne Allwine, who voiced Mickey and died in 2009. Both portrayed their iconic characters longer than any other voice actors.
Taylor was born in Cambridge, Mass. and was 75.
"Minnie Mouse lost her voice with the passing of Russi Taylor," Bob Iger, Disney Chairman and CEO, wrote on Twitter.
"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're so grateful for Russi's talent as well as the tremendous spirit and great joy she brought to everything she did.”
She played Minnie in films, television and video games, including Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse starting in 1986 when she beat out 200 other actors for the role.
Taylor was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award last year for portraying Minnie in the latest Mickey Mouse TV show rendition
"I really want whoever comes after us to be aware of the history and the tradition, and to love the characters as much as we do," Taylor said about herself and Allwine, according to Disney.
