Episode 086 – Margaret Kerry, Part 2

Margaret Kerry & Me

In this episode, we conclude my interview with Margaret Kerry. Again, most Disney fans will know Margaret as the original live-action reference model for Tinker Bell, but there is so much more to her than that! In part 1 we talked about how she became Tink, some insight into who Tink really is, her memories of Walt Disney, and more.


Now, in this episode, Margaret talks about…

  • Some of Marc Davis’s fine art work;
  • Being the voice of one of the redheaded mermaids in Peter Pan;
  • June Foray;
  • Getting into voiceover work;
  • A salute to Hal Smith—a pretty funny story;
  • Finding her birth family 50 years after she was adopted;
  • Tinker Bell is Irish!;
  • Her favorite place in the world;
  • Her second favorite dialect to do (behind Irish);
  • A quick story about her being a literalist;
  • Continental dialects;
  • Her upcoming book, Tinker Bell Talks: Tales of a Pixie Dusted Life;
  • A sneak preview at one of her stories from the book;
  • If she could have any job working for the Walt Disney Company, what it would be and why;
  • What she never gets asked that she wishes people would ask her;
  • Faith, trust, and pixie dust;
  • What inspires her;
  • Her advice to you for following your dreams;
  • The importance of joining Toastmasters;
  • A rather non-traditional Shameless Plug Time.
