Pamela Fionna Adlon (née Segall; born July 9, 1966) is an American actress, voice actress, and television producer.[1][2] She was originally credited as Pamela Segall, but since her marriage and divorce she's been credited as either "Pamela Segall Adlon" or "Pamela S. Adlon".

Adlon's best known role is playing Bobby Hill on the animated TV show King of the Hill, for which she won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance in 2002. Though she is mostly known for voicing young boys, Adlon has voiced two girl characters (both of which have boylike qualities): Margaret "Moose" Pearson in Pepper Ann and Ashley Spinelli in Recess.

Notable live-action roles include Girl Joey in the 1984 teen comedy film Growing Pains, Marcy Runkle on Showtime's Californication, Pamela on FX's Louie (she is also a consulting producer for the show).

Adlon was nominated for an Annie Award for her role as Otto Osworth on Cartoon Network's Time Squad. In 2006-07, she played the voice of Andy in Cartoon Network's Squirrel Boy animated series, and co-starred with Louis C.K. as his wife in the short-lived HBO sitcom Lucky Louie.[3]

Adlon voiced Pajama Sam in the video games Pajama Sam In: No Need to Hide When It's Dark Outside, Pajama Sam 2: Thunder and Lightning Aren't So Frightening, Pajama Sam 3: You Are What You Eat from Your Head to Your Feet and Pajama Sam's Games to Play on Any Day.

Personal life[edit]

Adlon was married to Felix O. Adlon, the son of German director Percy Adlon. They have three daughters.[4]
