Candi Milo (born January 9, 1961)[1] is an American voice actress and singer.

She has voiced many different characters on animated series such as Tiny Toon Adventures, The Replacements, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Cow and Chicken, Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron, W.I.T.C.H., Maya & Miguel, The Life and Times of Juniper Lee, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, My Life as a Teenage Robot, Codename: Kids Next Door and others.

Early life and career[edit]

Candyce Anne Rose Milo was born in Palm Springs, California,[1] however shortly after her family moved to San Jose, where she attended the all-girls Presentation High School. Her father, Tony Migliaccio, was a child actor who changed his name to Milo when he started playing adult roles. Her first appearance on stage was with her father at Turk Murphy's in 1964, where they sang Me and My Shadow together. By the time Milo was eleven, she was participating in children's musical theater.[2]

In 1977, she began singing in theme park attractions, most notably at Disneyland in Anaheim and afterwards started appearing in roles in movies and television series, such as Gimme a Break!, Knots Landing, and Perfect Strangers. Milo was also a member of "The Mighty Carson Art Players"" on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. She accidentally got into voice over after singing on stage. She was signed by The William Morris Agency for voice acting, which was initially disappointing to her because Milo originally wanted a singing career but settled with a voice over career.[2]

Milo's first voice role was Sweetie Pie in Tiny Toons Adventures in 1990. She played Lonette, an attractive animated waitress; Bob, a member of Holli Would's gang of goons who was a crossdresser and other characters in Cool World in addition to feeding lines to the other actors.[1]

She went on to be very active in cartoons, voicing Pakka in Cro, Ann Gora in Swat Kats: The Radical Squadron, Little Red Riding Hood in 2 Stupid Dogs, and the main characters' Mom, who was an unseen character and their teacher in Cow and Chicken.

Later she replaced Christine Cavanaugh as the voice of Dexter in Dexter's Laboratory in 2001, when Ms. Cavanaugh retired from voice acting for personal reasons, and voiced Dexter to the end of the show. 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.

From 2003-09, Milo did the voice of Dr. Nora Wakeman in My Life as a Teenage Robot. For this role, she was subsequently nominated for the Annie Award in 2004 and 2005.[3] During this time, the actress also voiced the Ophelia Ramirez in The Life and Times of Juniper Lee, Irma Lair in W.I.T.C.H., Zadavia in Loonatics Unleashed, as well as Coco, Madame Foster and Cheese in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

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.[2]

A single mother who has never married, she lives in the Silverlake suburb of Los Angeles with her daughter .
