Lending vocal life to the animated role of "Lisa Simpson" - the intelligent, caring, saxophone-droning, vegetarian member of the Simpson family - has been her bread-and-butter job for over 20 years. She is American but was born in Paris, France where her father served as a correspondent with UPI. By the time she was two, she and her family had moved to Washington, D.C., where she was raised. A shy, introverted child, she started her pixie-like young career as a teenager at a nearby dinner theater where she played "Tinkerbell" in a musical adaptation of "Peter Pan". After receiving her high school diploma, she apprenticed for a time at the famed Arena Stage, then headed off to New York and bigger things.

Yeardley understudied the role of "Debbie" on Broadway in Tom Stoppard's "The Real Thing", starring Jeremy Irons and Glenn Close, then took over the part for eight months. Small film offers started coming her way with Heaven Help Us (1985) and The Legend of Billie Jean (1985), so in 1986, she headed West and settled. After...

Kevin Dillon, Dana Barron, Malcolm Danare, etc.

Originally read for the role of "Bart" when auditioning for The Simpsons (1989), but her voice was too high and sounded like a girl, so she lightened her voice up a little and then auditioned and won the role of "Lisa". Nancy Cartwright had originally read for "Lisa", but was given the role of "Bart" instead.

Is only one of two actresses (the other being Marcia Wallace) on The Simpsons (1989) to regularly play only one character. All of the other actors play ten or more characters.
