HUGE Southern Utah Celebrity You Never Knew Lived Here!
A few days ago, August 16th, a HUGE had a birthday. Unfortunately this celebrity passed away almost 9 years ago. This celebrity also called Southern Utah "home" during her final years. This celebrity whom I'm referencing is Christine Cavanaugh. That name may not ring any bells to you, but her voice might. Christine was born in Layton, Utah before hitting Hollywood, and finally moving to Cedar City, Utah before she passed away at the age of only 51.
Here's where you would know Christine Cavanaugh:
Voice of Chucky FInster, Rugrats:
Voice of Babe, Babe:
Voice of Dexter, Dexter's Laboratory:
Voice of Bunny, Powerpuff Girls:
Gosalyn Waddlemeyer-Mallard, Darkwing Duck:
Voice of Birdie The Early Bird, The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald:
Voice of Oblina, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters:
Christine was also in the following movies/TV shows:
- Jerry McGuire
- Bobby's World
- The X-Files
- Everybody Loves Raymond
This past Wednesday, Christine would've been 60 years old. Her career started to SKYROCKET in 1991 when she landed the role of Chucky on Rugrats, and Gosalyn Mallard on Disney's Darkwing Duck. Christine was also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. After Christine's passing, she was cremated and had her remains spread in the Great Salt Lake.
After living in Southern Utah nearly my entire life, I've NEVER ONCE heard that the voice of SO MANY CHARACTERS in my childhood lived right here!
