June Foray

Date Of Birth: Sep 18, 1917
Birth Place: Springfield, Massachusetts, USA

Popularity: 201st All Time, 297th This Week

Trivia & Fun Facts:

Started doing voices for radio at age 12.

Wrote an autobiography entitled "You Grew Up with Me Too?"

Voiced Betty Rubble in Hanna-Barbera's 90-second pilot for 'The Flinstones', before being told that the entire voice cast would be re-evaluated for the actual series, and that she was not allowed to re-audition. Foray's relationship with Hanna-Barbara was strained for years, and her work for them was limited until the 1980s.

Quotes:

"I love everything I do with all of the parts that I do because there's a little bit of me in all of them. We all have anger and jealousy and love and hope in our natures. We try to communicate that vocally with just sketches that you see on the screen and make it come alive and make it human. That's what I enjoy doing."

Other Professions:

- Radio actress
- Occasional on-camera actress

Question, was it June Foray or Bea Benaderet who voiced Witch Hazel in the Broomstick Bunny Short? They sound so similar in the role I get confused sometimes.

Since she's been doing voice acting since around 1929 or 1930, she must be one of the few VAs still living today who knows most ways that voice acting has evolved since it practically started (like how recording studios/equipment/talent agencies etc. have changed every decade or whatever)!

Some song lyrics that always make me think of June, and her upbeat attitude -
"I've known the fears of 98 years, I've had troubles and tears by the score;

But the only thing I'd trade 'em for, is [97] more!"

Happy Birthday June Foray!

She is the longest living voice actress of all time, I mean she's turning 98 today that's incredible. She is the last VA from the golden age still with us and that's awesome.

She's had so many great iconic roles including Granny, Witch Hazel, Magica de Spell, Rocky, Natasha, Aunt May and so much more.

Please Make it to a hundred June, we all know you can do it. It'd be awesome having a VA over the age of a hundred.

It's pretty awesome that she is the oldest voice actress alive.

I really hope she can make it to a hundred and beyond.

Happy birthday, June Foray.

A wonderful radio performer, she was great for comedic roles. I also loved her as Aunt May in Spider-Friends. Glad she's still going.

Wow, Happy 98th Birthday, just 2 more more years left to survive, than she'll be 100 years old. That would be an impressive accomplishment for a VA like her.

I find it kind of funny that she's only been in one episode of The Simpsons.

Especially since she IS a native of Springfield.

June is definitely one of the greatest and oldest of the veterans in the VA world. I'm always afraid whenever I see her page updated considering shes 96, that the bad news is going to be on her page. I hope that doesn't happen anytime soon.
