Remember the nodding Noddy or Princess Eilonwy from The Black Couldron? These characters, famous among children and adults alike, came to life after Susan Sheridan gave them her voice.


The British actress whose voice acting


roles included Noddy in the Cosgrove Hall/BBC Television series Noddy’s Toyland Adventures, Princess Sylvia in Muzzy in Gondoland, and Princess Eilonwy in the animated film The Black Cauldron, died at the age of 68 on Sunday.

Born in Newcastle, the milestone of her career was “Trillian” in the 1978 Hitchhiker’s Guide series. She gave voice to cartoons like Jimbo and the Jet Set, Moomin, The Family Ness, and Animal Shelf.

Recently, she starred in The Kindness of Strangers for Curious Directive at the Norwich Festival and Short Plays By at the Soho Theatre. Her work included BBC’s Macbeth with Corin Redgrave, Bless Me Father and a 2012 episode of Midsummer Murders.

The actress had her own voice coaching business – Professional Voice, with her series of mini books and CDs still available in the market.

In her later years, she worked as a voice coach. In 2011, Sheridan appeared at London’s Southwark Playhouse in an adaptation of the Japanese animation Howl’s Moving Castle.


After completing an MA course in 2009 on Shakespeare Authorship Studies, she was writing a book currently entitled Shaking the Spear which is to be published later this year.

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.
