Yeardley Smith

Biography

Date of Birth 3 July 1964, Paris, France Birth Name Martha Maria Yeardley Smith Height 5' 4" (1.63 m) Mini Biography Comic actress and voice specialist Yeardley Smith has made a virtue out of her odd looks, small figure and distinctive, child-like nasal tones. Lending vocal life to the animated role of Lisa Simpson - the intelligent, caring, saxophone-droning, vegetarian member of the Simpson family - has been her bread-and-butter job for over a decade and a half. She is American but was born in Paris, France where her father served as a correspondent with UPI. By the time she was two, she and her family had moved to Washington, D.C., where she was raised. A shy, introverted child, she started her pixie-like young career as a teenager at a nearby dinner theater where she played Tinkerbell in a musical adaptation of "Peter Pan." After receiving her high school diploma she apprenticed for a time at the famed Arena Stage, then headed off to New York and bigger things.
