Actress. As a teenager in 1934, she won the role that would make her famous, the voice of "Snow White" in Walt Disney's first feature-length cartoon. She sang the song "Someday My Prince Will Come." According to studio history, Disney had been searching for a voice that was "ageless, friendly, natural and innocent." Ariannna Caselotti got a recommendation for the role when a Disney casting scout asked her father, a Los Angeles vocal coach, if any of his students might have a voice beguiling enough for the role. More than 150 people had already auditioned, including actress Deanna Durbin. In a 1993 interview, Caselotti said she was paid $20 a day to sing and read the lines for the role, for a total of $970.
