Elizabeth Daily

Highest Rated:   94% Lorenzo's Oil (1992)
Birthday:  
Birthplace:   Los Angeles, California, USA
With her ample animation work and a parallel career as a singer/songwriter, Elizabeth Daily has made the most of her husky yet youthful voice as well as her acting ability. Making her film debut in 1981, Daily starred as a young singer in the independent Street Music. Occasionally billed as "E. G. Daily," Daily played mostly supporting roles in movies throughout the 1980s, including one of the titular types in the clever teen comedy Valley Girl (1983). Her distinctive voice helped make Daily's cheerful Dottie the perfect romantic partner for Paul Reubens' signature man-boy Pee-Wee Herman in Tim Burton's cartoon-esque comedy hit Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985). After appearing in the John Hughes-produced Dutch (1991) and Nancy Savoca's unjustly-overlooked romance Dogfight (1991), Daily focused her energies more extensively on TV and animation voice-over work, including Nickelodeon's popular Rugrats series and The Rugrats Movie (1998). When the original voice actress for the 1995 hit Babe demanded too hefty a raise for its sequel, Daily stepped in to voice the irrepressibly upbeat young sheep-herding pig in Babe: Pig in the City (1998) -- and lost to herself at the box office when the far darker Babe 2 opened poorly against Rugrats. Along with acting, Daily's music has been included on the soundtracks of Scarface (1983), The Breakfast Club (1985,) and Better off Dead (1985).
