Maddie Taylor (born December 31, 1966, in Flint, Michigan)[1], formerly Matthew William Taylor, is an American voice actress, storyboard artist[2] and comedian, known for voicing Verminious Snaptrap in T.U.F.F. Puppy and Sparky in The Fairly OddParents.


While starting as a storyboard artist at Sony Pictures Animation,[3] Taylor lent her voice to Deni, the crazed duck, and Buddy, the blue porcupine, in the studio's first full feature Open Season, as well as voicing Elliot in the video game adaptation, replacing Ashton Kutcher. In the film's two sequels, she replaced Patrick Warburton as the strong mule deer Ian in Open Season 2, and replaced Joel McHale as the voice of Elliot in Open Season 3, before being replaced by Will Townsend in Open Season: Scared Silly.[citation needed]

Within 2006, she provided ADR voices for George W. Bush for the South Park episode "Mystery of the Urinal Deuce", but was not included in the credits.[citation needed]

Taylor was cast in T.U.F.F. Puppy as Verminious Snaptrap and in The Fairly OddParents as Sparky in 2013, both of which are developed by Nickelodeon and created by Butch Hartman.

In late 2016, Taylor provided the voice for the interactive character, Gary the Gull, for the PlayStation VR.[citation needed] Since her transition, Taylor has been voicing more female characters.

Personal life[edit]

In 2016, Taylor publicly came out as a trans woman.[1]
