Nancy Cartwright (born October 25, 1957) is an American actress and
comedian. On the animated television series The Simpsons, she is the
voice of Bart Simpson, as well as Nelson Muntz, Ralph Wiggum, and Todd
Flanders. Her first professional role was voicing Gloria in the animated
series Richie Rich, followed by a starring role in the television movie
Marian Rose White (1982). In 1987, intending to audition for the role of
Lisa Simpson in a series of animated shorts, she found Bart more
interesting, and was offered the role on the spot by Matt Groening, the
series' creator. She held the role for three seasons on The Tracey
Ullman Show, and has voiced Bart for 29 seasons on The Simpsons, winning
an Emmy and an Annie Award for her work. Cartwright has also voiced
Daffney Gillfin in The Snorks, Rufus in Kim Possible, Mindy in
Animaniacs, Margo Sherman in The Critic, and Chuckie in Rugrats and All
Grown Up! She has adapted her autobiography, My Life as a 10-Year-Old
Boy (2000), into a one-woman play.
