Another voice has gone to the Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Susan Sheridan, actress behind Disney’s Princess Eilonwy and the original Trillian from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, passed this past weekend. She was a hoopy gal.
Sheridan, 68, died in her home. She’ll always have a place in my heart as the original Trillian - a role she recently resumed for the Hitchhiker’s live stage show (see above) - but fans of (unfairly obscure) Disney princesses may remember her better as Eilonwy from The Black Cauldon. She was one of many Hitchhiker’s Guide actors to have multiple big roles.
Strangely, most of the Eilonwy clips on YouTube are fandubs, so this silly clip is the only one I could find with Sheridan’s vocal work:
She will be missed.
