Animal Movie Actor. Gidget was known since the late 1990's as the Chihuahua in the Taco Bell television commercials in which she said the phrase "Yo Quiero Taco Bell" which meant "I want Taco Bell". She was originally cast as the girlfriend to the male Chihuahua in the ad by the director but at the last minute he decided that he wanted Gidget as the lead dog. Gidget was also cast in the 2003 film, "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde" in which she played Reese Witherspoons character Elle Woods' pet dog Bruiser's mother. She also had a role as an extra in the 2008 animal-themed movie, "Beverly Hills Chihuahua." Gidget died in the home of her trainer Sue Chipperton at the age of 15 due to a stroke.
