This actress provided the voice of two of Disney’s greatest villains, Lady Tremaine, the wicked Stepmother in Cinderella and more infamously as the voice of Maleficent in Sleeping Beauty.  In addition, she is the voice of Madam Leota on The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland and Walt Disney World for the regular one, not the holiday one.  Truly this is the bad girl of all bad girls, she got her own movie coming out tomorrow.

This actress born on March 19th 1947, she lived with her family that actually got involved with a cult for a while.  She left the group and went to college where she double majored in theater and anthropology.  Thankfully she choose the career path with more honor and became an actress.  Doing lots of stage work she got into TV in the 80’s and film in the late 80’s.  She has acted alongside very famous actors and actresses, but her place in the Price Club comes from playing Cruella DeVille in the live action film of 101 Dalmatians. She also voice Kala on Tarzan singing “You’ll Be in My Heart.”
