Vale – Ilene Woods

Ilene Woods - 1921-2010

Just a quick tip of the hat today, in honour of the original voice of Cinderella, Ilene Woods, who passed away last week aged 81. Woods came to fame as the voice of Disney’s animated princess in 1950, and while her career never reached the same heights again, she remained active well into her senior years. She was awarded Disney Legend status in 2003 for her work on Cinderella.

Woods died on July 1st, at a nursing home in LA, from complications of Alzheimers Disease.
