Candi Milo

Candi Milo (born January 9, 1961) is an American voice actress and singer. She is the voice of Jacobo on Disney's The Replacements, Coco, Madame Foster and Cheese on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Irma Lair on Disney's W.I.T.C.H., lead character Maya Santos on Maya & Miguel (where she speaks fluent Spanish), the punk rocker/goth protegé Ophelia Ramírez on The Life and Times of Juniper Lee, Zadavia in Loonatics Unleashed, and Nick Dean on The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius as reprised from the movie and Nora Wakeman on My Life as a Teenage Robot. Candi is famous for voicing a majority of characters with a thick Latino accent.

A native of San Jose, California, she attended the all-girls Presentation High School. Later, she replaced Christine Cavanaugh as the voice of Dexter in Dexter's Laboratory in 2001 when Ms. Cavanaugh retired from show business, and she was also the voice of Sweetie Pie on Tiny Toons. Her other voice credits include Snap from ChalkZone, The Flea on Mucha Lucha, and the title character in the U.S. version of the 2003 Astro Boy (Tetsuwan Atomu) series. Milo says that when creating a unique voice the artist's drawings speak to her and that she prides herself on creating "a full life" for each character.[1]

Her father, Tony, was a child actor. By age sixteen, she was already in theme park shows, most notably those at Disneyland in Anaheim. After appearing in bit roles in the movies, and made occasional appearances as a member of "The Mighty Carson Art Players" on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, she accidentally got into voice acting while feeding lines to actors in the Ralph Bakshi animated/live action movie Cool World, and wound up playing Lonette, a sexy animated waitress as well as Bob, a member of Holli Would's gang of goons who was a crossdresser, among a dozen characters. A single mom, she lives in a suburb of Los Angeles, California with her daughter.
