Great actress. but there is a mistake, she was born in 1944, not 1941.

I know of at least two young women in my area who are named Jana after Jana of the Jungle. When a mother will name her daughter after an animated character, that character has touched the heart. Kudos to B.J. Ward, the late Doug Wildey, and all the other talents behind Jana.

I saw BJ perform years ago in a small cabaret club in West Hollywood. I saw Helen Hunt and Sarah Jessica Parker there also, but I did not know BJ was Helen's stepmom!

BJ did a song in which she performed many of her popular voiceover characters! She also performed an opera aria that was fantastic.

Is that a current picture, if so she has aged beautifully.

@Music Meister It's a few years old, but she looks pretty much the same now (she made a recent Voltron appearance at a convention). I agree that she looks fantastic for her age.

She really needs to be in more stuff. It's a shame she's not quite as active as she used to be.

She's always been one of my favorite voice actors. I loved her Scarlett and her interpretation as Velma in Scooby Doo.

Though it's not mentioned in her credits, she played "Betty Jean", sister-in-law to Max Tennyson in the wedding episode of Ben 10. Her character's husband was named "Gordon". Homage?

All due respect to Grey Delisle, B.J. Ward is Betty Rubble, just as Tress MacNeille is currently Wilma Flintstone. In a future Flintstones program, it would be good to hear both B.J. and Tress as Betty and Wilma, respectively, also along with Jeff Bergman as Fred and Frank Welker as Barney.
