Christine Cavanaugh Tribute
|Part of an
article on Little Surprises
It was interesting to also talk to the voice of Babe, Christine Cavanaugh, who said she originally read for the role of Fly, the dog. She was turned down for the pig role "because they wanted a child."
So she faked her name as Chris and "I thought of myself as a little boy" (she's 30), read, won the role, revealed herself, natch, to director Noonan. He
told her, "be honest, sincere." She was. Christine talked to Noonan in Sydney, reporting, "He's ecstatic." She's also in the Little Surprises, nominated
for live action short film, directed by first-time director Jeff Goldblum, whom she said was also "amazing."
