The Ohana The Ohana Issue 2 Volume 1 - Page 46

From that moment on I knew I had to get to know this woman. Over the course of the next couple of years my friendship with Terri grew and I discovered that Terri isn't like any other celebrity I knew. In every conversation or meeting with her, she always made sure that everyone else was put front and center, even if it meant that she wasn't placed there at all. She's genuinely interested in the people around her, and strives to make you feel like you're the only person around while she's talking to you, even in a crowded room.

This is the essence of who Terri is, in addition to all of the great things I listed above. Most of all, she's an amazing friend and we are VERY pleased to have her with us. Terri was gracious enough to do an extended live chat with our Ohana recently, and has given us her blessing to devote a space in the magazine each week to recap some of the Q&A from the chat and to revisit those words of wisdom smattered throughout.

Ohana: What is your favorite thing to work on or your favorite project?

Terri: Dragon's Lair Paris

Ohana: What's Terri's official title and job duties?

Terri: Walt Disney's Legendary Imagineer (and one day they'll understand that)

Ohana: Have you ever done any voice work?

Terri: Yes. In a movie named Monkey Bone, I played the part of Betty Bovine, "Three Balls For A Dolla" (in heavy Bronx accent). I also did small voice parts in the TV show Dinosaur.

Ohana: If you could voice any future or existing Disney attraction, what would it be?

Terri: I actually auditioned for the role of Figment before EPCOT Center opened in the 80's. The audition process went from over 100 kids down to about 10, then the top 3 were flown to Florida to actually do a recording of the voice and I ended up coming in 3rd place. So every time I see Figment I think of that connection.
