RIP Heather North-Kenney.

It's pretty awful to have find out she passed away almost a month ago and nobody knew until now.

Her birthday was last week yet no one knew she longer walked on this Earth.

She was great as Daphne and helped create the standard for which the character was to be.

What is eerie is that the date they announced her death (yesterday, December 19th) was the one year anniversary of Gordon Hunt's death, and that's eerie since Gordon directed her in numerous Scooby-Doo projects over the years.

According to an article where you can see in a thread about her death in "Report Mistakes" section, you can see that a family friend of hers was the one who told reporters she had died, so she kept it a secret until family members of Hearher's gave her permission to do so.

Oh, jeepers... Ooooooh jeepers! Of all the voice actresses who got to portray Daphne Blake, she was the one I grew most familiar with; her and Grey DeLisle's renditions. I'm going to miss her so much.

R.I.P Heather North Kenney.

RIP North Kenney. I've never watched Scooby Doo but I'd imagine how saddening her death might be for a majority of the fans.

Happy Birthday Heather North Kenney!

Her Daphne was classic, and it was cool that she reprised in some of the movies back a decade ago though it's a shame she didn't do much else outside of Scooby-Doo in terms of voice acting.

also it's cool that when she started voicing Daphne she wasn't even twenty years old at the time.

really? she voiced her in some of the latest movies? gosh! 2002 is not that long ago. Does she still sound like her in those movies? Considering her age?

@dreamer She sounded decent, a little aged, but it wasn't not too noticeable. Heather's Daphne voice has always sounded fairly mature, and it still suited the part well. She was better in the Monster of Mexico movie, after she had gotten back in the groove of things.

It would be nice if she came back for another project, or at least had a guest starring role as another character in the newest series. Kinda like how Casey Kasem voiced Shaggy's father, Heather could've voiced Nan Blake.
