Linda Larkin is an American actress and voice actress. She is best known for voicing Princess Jasmine in Disney’s 1992 animated feature film, Aladdin. She later reprised her role in the sequels, The Return of Jafar and Aladdin and the King of Thieves, as well as in the Kingdom Hearts and Disney Infinity video game series. In order for her to voice Princess Jasmine she had to lower her voice due to Disney saying her voice was too high for Jasmine’s voice. For her work at Disney, Larkin was honored as a Disney Legend on August 19, 2011.
Irene Bedard is an American actress who has played many Native American characters in a variety of films. She is perhaps best known for the role of Suzy Song in the film adaptation of Sherman Alexie’s Smoke Signals as well as for providing the voice of the title character in the animated film Pocahontas. In 2012, she started “Sleeping Lady Films” and “Waking Giants Productions” with Canadian businessman Thom Denomme. The production companies based out of Anchorage and Santa Fe, New Mexico, are dedicated to bringing stories that are both positive and inspirational from Indian Country to the world.
