Wayne Allwine took over the voice acting for Mickey Mouse in 1977. He was only the third person to ever voice Mickey (Walt Disney himself was the first one). He voiced Mickey until he died in 2009, doing it for 32 years! Actress Russi Taylor began performing for Minnie Mouse in 1986 and still does so to this day, making her the longest lasting performer for Minnie Mouse.

The two got married in 1991 and remained together until Wayne died in 2009! Details of their personal life aren’t easily available, but it’s not hard to imagine the two falling in love after long recording sessions while playing their rodent characters!
