Of course, there’s more to Yeardley Smith than just her voice. Born in Paris, France, in 1964, Miss Smith moved to Washington, D.C., with her family when she was only two years old. After being graduated from drama school in 1982, Smith went to New York to pursue a career in acting, appearing with Jeremy Irons and Glenn Close in the Broadway production of The Real Thing. By 1985, she was working in films such as Heaven Help Us, The Legend of Billie Jean and Maximum Overdrive.
Also a talented author and painter, Smith wrote and illustrated the children’s book, I, Lorelei which was published by Harper Collins in 2009. This multitalented woman has brought so much joy into our lives through her many endeavours. For this reason, Yeardley Smith is this week’s “Person of the Week.”
Don’t forget, there’s still time to submit your nominations for “Person of the Year.” Voting will begin in December.
