Margaret Kerry Q&A. Margaret Kerry is the original Tinker Bell in Disney's Peter Pan! Kerry was cast as the reference model for Tinker Bell by Marc Davis who designed the magical little pixie. Margaret was filmed acting out the scenes for the world famous sprite and the animators drew the antics of the little blonde icon from Margaret’s acting and dancing. She was also the reference model and the voice of the Red Haired Mermaid in the Lagoon sequence in Peter Pan. Margaret has been in the entertainment business for decades beginning with appearances in Our Gang Comedies followed by work in 37 major motion pictures. She was the co-host of an early musical on California TV, was cast as the teenage daughter in the pioneer ABC network family sitcom, The Charlie Ruggles Show and played the daughter of Eddie Cantor in the RKO musical, If You Knew Susie. Being cast in Peter Pan began a long career as a voice-over actress in more than 600 cartoons including the long running Clutch Cargo and Space Angel as well as 279 episodes with The New Three Stooges cartoons. Kerry later became an animated-film producer and is now senior vice president of an independent animation corporation. She hosted her own radio show, What’s Up Weekly which was heard for 10 years in Southern California on KKLA 99.5 fm.
