    Tony Jay, voice of Judge Frollo passes on

    http://mmorpg.qj.net/tags/tony-jay/8209


    Legendary Royal Shakespeare Actor and Voice Artist Tony Jay has succumbed to his battle with recovering from a micro surgery done to remove a non cancerous tumor from his lungs. He was admitted to Cedar Sinai Hospital in April 2006 and was well on his way to returning home with his wife Marta and his son Adam, when his vital signs became critical.

    His works include being the narrator in World of Warcraft, The Legacy of Kain Series as the Elder God, X-Men Legends as Magneto and his role as Judge Frollo in Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame", a role that has been been critically acclaimed as "probably the best Disney villain to date."

    He will be laid to rest on Saturday, August 19, 2006 at Forest Lawn Memorial Park Hollywood, California.

    We are losing too many of the great voice over artists. So sad. Frollo was a great villian and he did it perfect.

    This is sad.

    He was also one of the best voices of Shere Khan, next to George Saunders, of course. He will indeed be greatly missed.

    OH NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I worked with Tony on the TV series Beauty and The Beast. In fact I had the pleasure of teaching him the trick of "Baby Powder" in his English Riders to help get them on and off. (And helped him pull off his boots on more than one occassion)

    Gods, I am just sitting here sobbing over this. (The horrific thing about knowing celebrities, is usually you find out about losing them through news reports, papers, or even chatroom threads).

    He was one of the most wonderful, thoughtful and gentle people I ever had the pleasure to know. Just stunned over this. And incredible voice and an even more incredible, giving actor.

    To paraphrase Gibbs in PotC: Dead Man's Chest..."And already the world is a bit sadder."

    *Bye Tony, I'll always love you for the time you took to teach me those little things about acting that make such a difference*
