Nickelodeon has found themselves in the middle of controversy with one of their stars. The young lady that voices the charcter of Dora has been “let go” by Nickelodeon. Caitlin Sanchez, the 14-year-old who voices Dora, has recently gone through puberty and no longer has the same voice. She was signed with the company to have a contract to last until June of 2012. She last recorded audio for the show on September 30, 2010 and there were no problems then, could there be something that the public doesn’t know? Sanchez’s mother has filed a lawsuit against Nickelodeon, the company says that Sanchez will be compensated for her work but her voice will no longer fit the character.
- Do you think it’s fair for the company to drop her?
- Do you think there is something deeper other than her voice changing?
