Margaret Kerry

Coming to The Great Philadelphia Comic Con 2017!
April 7th-9th, 2017 at The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA.

Margaret Kerry is an American actress, motivational speaker and radio host, best known for her 1953 work as the model for Tinker Bell in the Walt Disney Pictures animated feature, Peter Pan.

Kerry answered an audition call during the planning stages of the animated feature film Peter Pan. The audition, supervised by animator Marc Davis, required her to pantomime the motions that would be used as live-action reference for the animation of Tinker Bell. She won the part and spent six months at the Disney Studios on a mostly empty sound stage pantomiming the part. The studios provided props, notably a giant keyhole mounted on a stand as well as a pair of giant scissors, used in the scene where Tinker Bell became trapped in a jewelry box. Kerry also provided the voice and reference movements of the red-haired mermaid in the Neverland lagoon scene.

Since 1992, Kerry has been a producer, writer and host of "What's Up Weekly" on KKLA-FM Los Angeles, a Christian radio station. The station's community services director, she heads an outreach program that connects to more than 200 non-profit service agencies. She attends conventions and signs autographs, including the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention.

She also worked under her real name as a dancer and actor in three of the Our Gang comedy shorts.
