Barbara Goodson became aware of her mimicry skills early on while imitating friends and family members for their entertainment.
Her career covers many genres. Recently, Barbara played the Wise Shaman in the indie sci-fi film Home Sweet Home, and can also be seen in the feature Good Satan as Mother Teresa, Cybil in Killer Granny, (Doug Jones’s sister) Aunt Eloise in Cruel Will and Olga, The Crazy Landlady in the web series LaLaLand. She just finished playing Rozzie The Mah Jong Lady in an original play (hoping to go to Broadway) called My Mother’s Keeper, and the voice of Grandma in a new Arby’s commercial.
Among the over 200 characters Barbara has voiced, she is most known for creating the voice of Empress Rita Repulsa on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Mother Talzin in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Naota in FLCL, Red Fraggle in the animated Fraggle Rock, Granny Chiyo in Naruto, Lady Vashj in World of Warcraft, Sera and Marie Crystal in Robotech, Darling in Lady and the Tramp II, and Cruella Deville and Cinderella’s Step Mother in Disney-On-Ice.
Barbara was extremely proud to be awarded a Best Actor Award for Mother Talzin in Star Wars: The Clone Wars in 2012 by Behind The Voices Actors, and receiving an Earphones Award for narrating Blair Clemons in the book On A Night Like This. She was also part of the wonderful cast of the series Cloud Bread nominated for an Annie and International Emmy Award for children’s programming.
She is truly grateful to all the fans that grew up with her and is very excited to meet them all!
