Mary Kay Bergman (June 5, 1961 – November 11, 1999) was an American voice actress with numerous roles and bit parts in television, movies, direct-to-video animation, and advertising. She was best known for voicing many female characters on South Park.

Biography

Personal life

Bergman was born in Los Angeles, California. Her parents were Jewish, but Bergman was non-practicing and converted to Roman Catholicism after exploring several Christian denominations; she later referred to herself as a "Catholic Jew;" as she was never truly devout and always remained proud of her Jewish heritage. Mary Kay grew up around the corner from the home of Adriana Caselotti, the original voice of Snow White. At an early age, she found herself drawn to fantasy entertainment ranging from science fiction to anything Disney. Mary Kay was always proud of the fact that as a child she and her mother wrote letters to NBC to help keep the original Star Trek on the air for a third season. With regard to Disney, she regularly visited Disneyland and was once quoted as saying, "My one regret is that I never got to meet Walt Disney." Later, with her husband, Dino Andrade, Mary Kay enjoyed Star Trek conventions while continuing to visit Disneyland, Walt Disney World, and Disneyland Paris.

Career

Bergman was known for voicing most of the female characters in animated series such as Fox Kids' The Secret Files of the Spy Dogs, where she played a dog named Mitzy and a number of other characters. She also voiced characters for South Park and the 1999 feature film South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. Her characters included Liane Cartman, Sheila Broflovski, Sharon Marsh, Mrs. McCormick, and Wendy Testaburger. Originally, Bergman was credited on South Park as Shannen Cassidy because she was also serving as Disney's official Snow White voice. The South Park episode "Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics" was dedicated to her, as was the episode "Starvin' Marvin in Space," the first episode to air after her death.

Another large role was her voice work in Captain Planet and the Planeteers as Dr. Blight for five seasons with the show. She did the voice of Arista in the Little Mermaid TV series.

Bergman's other voice credits included over 400 television commercials, including the voice of Mrs. Butterworth in Mrs. Butterworth's syrup commercials, as well as various Disney films (Beauty and the Beast, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Mulan, Toy Story 2), Jay Jay the Jet Plane, Daphne Blake in more recent Scooby-Doo animated movies, Timmy Turner in Oh Yeah! Cartoons episodes of The Fairly OddParents (When the pilot episodes were aired as actual episodes in 2001, Bergman's voice was overdubbed by Tara Strong.), and several female voices in The Tick animated series. She also sang in the "Weird Al" Yankovic song "Pretty Fly for a Rabbi", alongside Tress MacNeille. According to the IMDb, her final film role was in Balto II: Wolf Quest.

Death

After suffering from depression and anxiety, Bergman committed suicide by gunshot in her West Los Angeles, California apartment, on November 11, 1999. Andrade, along with a friend, discovered her body and suicide note and later established the Mary Kay Bergman Memorial Fund, which contributes to the operation of the Suicide Prevention Center at the Didi Hirsch Community Mental Health Center.

After Bergman's death, the voice actress Eliza Schneider took over all of her voice roles on South Park.

Mary Kay Bergman was also a self-described "geek," as she was an avid fan of science-fiction, horror, and fantasy. Andrade later created the geek dating website SoulGeek.Com in her memory.
