Welsh was an radio soap opera actress and only appeared in three films, most famously as the voice of E.T. in the 1982 film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Her only movie appearance was in the 1940 WW1 film Waterloo Bridge.
As a chain smoker, she had a raspy voice that gave E.T. his trademark speech sound. She also had been hired by George Lucas to be the voice of Boushh in the film Return of the Jedi. Lucas had said he was in the laundromat when he thought her ambiguous voice was perfect.
