Paddi Edwards (December 9, 1931 – October 18, 1999) was an English-American actress. Born Paddy Edwards, she worked steadily in film. She found a niche in television movies and, towards the end of her life, doing voiceover work in projects for Disney, such as the roles of Flotsam & Jetsam in The Little Mermaid franchise, as the Future Fate Atropos in Hercules and as Vera in Pepper Ann.

Though a successful actress, she is very often remembered for her guest starring role as Anya, a shapeshifting mother-figure, on the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Dauphin", as well as providing the voice of the deity Gozer in Ghostbusters.

Paddi appeared on the NBC-TV sitcom series Night Court as Hank Shannon, the mother of Bull Shannon, who was played by Richard Moll. Her American TV series guest appearances, in addition to Night Court, also included CBS's Murder, She Wrote, NBC's 227, Life Goes On, FOX's Married... with Children, and Murphy Brown.


Edwards died of respiratory failure on October 18, 1999 in her longtome residence in Encino, California.
