Susanne Ann Blakeslee (also known as Susan Blakeslee, Suzanne Blakeslee, and Suzanne Blakesley; born January 27, 1956) is an American voice actress and musical theatre actress. Among her notable roles are the voices of Timmy Turner's fairy godmother Wanda, Anti-Wanda and his mother Mrs. Turner on Nickelodeon's The Fairly OddParents; and as the voice of Maleficent in the Kingdom Hearts video game series and Disney media. In 2012, Blakeslee won an Ovation Award for Lead Actress in a Musical for Forbidden Broadway Greatest Hits, Volume 2.
Blakeslee performed on the stage set of Forbidden Broadway from 1990 to 1994 and worked as the show's choreographer in 1994. Her other stage appearance's include On the Twentieth Century (2003); and What If? (2004). Blakeslee won the Lead Actress in a Musical Ovation Award in 2012 for her role as Woman 1 in Forbidden Broadway Greatest Hits, Volume 2.
Since the 1990s, Blakeslee has been voice acting in animation, video games, and theme parks. She is best known as the voice of Timmy Turner's fairy godmother, Wanda, on the animated TV series, The Fairly OddParents (2001–17); The Jimmy Timmy Power Hour trilogy (a crossover with the Jimmy Neutron franchise (2004)); and the live-action TV films, A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner! (2011); A Fairly Odd Christmas (2012); and A Fairly Odd Summer (2014). She also voiced other characters on the same show, including Timmy's mother, Mrs. Turner, and Anti-Wanda.
Since the early 2000s, Blakeslee provides The Walt Disney Company as the current voices of various characters in Disney media, most notably, Cruella de Vil, and the Evil Queen. She is perhaps best known by Disney fans for her imitation of the late Eleanor Audley's portrayal as Lady Tremaine, Maleficent, and Madame Leota.
