Voice Compare » Madeline » Miss Clavel

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Miss Clavel with sound clips and images.
Miss Clavel is one of the main characters in the Madeline storyline whom has been in the series since right from the start. Miss Clavel is a catholic nun who is the teacher of the Boarding School with twelve students in which the smallest one is Madeline (though Madeline's mischievous behavior is often a great source of stress to Miss Clavel). However despite all the headaches that Madeline has caused her Miss Clavel genuinely cares for her and the other girls very much in fact she seems to be quite able to sense if any of the girls are in danger. Miss Clavel is a prim and proper Nun whom not only cares for her students but she is also her students voice of reason and often tries to calm them down and think rationally when they are upset.

Today on zee Madeline VC section we take a look at Madeline's caring though a tad bit overstressed teacher... MISS CLAVEL! Let us begin mes petites!

Judith Orban- Judith's voice and performance definitely suited Miss Clavel's caring nature just fine. Not only is Judith's performance for the role just fine when Miss Clavel is speaking but she is also a pretty good singer as well (even if that song can get overly repetitive). But still Judith's work on the role is a fine example of the early Madeline specials.

Stevie Vallance- Stevie's attempt at the French Accent was a bit thick but Stevie does a pretty good job in making it fit with the role rather well. As for Stevie's performance it also suited the role well as it did suit Miss Clavel's fretful though caring nature pretty well and is a pretty good example of Stevie's voice work.

Whoopi Goldberg- I know that plenty of people found the idea of casting Whoopi as Miss Clavel but personally I didn't mind as I actually thought her attempt at the French accent was pretty good. While it may seem a bit strange to hear Miss Clavel with a fairly lower voice but I got over that pretty quickly as Whoopi's performance does suit Miss Clavel's caring nature rather well.

Overall I am not too sure who to go with here as all of these ladies did pretty well with the role here.

1. Judith Orban- Sounds the most natural and motherly.
2. Stevie Vallence- Good but the accent was a bit forced.
3. Whooping Goldberg- Voice was too deep and not motherly sounding

I didn't know Whoopi Goldberg was Miss Clavel in My Fair Madeline. That's amazing!

Sadly, I wasn't too familiar with the original voice. Therefore, my vote goes to Vallance...

I genuinely like all 3 of them.
But, for me, at least....

Judith Orban, does the best speaking voice.
Stevie Vallance, does the best French accent.
Whoopi Goldberg, does the best singing voice.

 1 Shout Out!
1. Stevie Vallance - Quite motherly sounding, and very fitting, Straight up nostalgia here for me
2. Whoopi Goldberg - Sounds nothing like her regular voice or other roles. Fits Clavel's motherly nature.
3. Judith Orban - Haven't heard her Clavel as much as Stevie's but I suppose she had some potential

Very impressed with Whoopi's take, considering we don't usually hear anything like that from her. She really should be allowed to branch out and do more than just her default voice.
