Feature: Marge Champion, Snow White's Live Action Model

Marge Champion talks about her life and experiences, including modeling for Snow White, the Blue Fairy and Hyacinth Hippo.

Steven Ng was lucky enough to get some time with Marge Champion at the D23 Expo in September. Mrs. Champion was accompanied by Gordon Ho, who created the multimedia presentations for the Snow White panel at the D23 Expo and the new Blu-Ray release. Mrs. Champion served as the live action model for the title character in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the Blue Fairy in Pinocchio and the dancing hippo in Fantasia.

Mrs. Champion talked about her work in creating the dancing of Snow White and of some of the dwarfs, notably Dopey. She also spoke of her experiences at the premiere of Snow White; the visits to her father's dance studio by Shirley Temple and Sharon and Diane Disney; her marriage to Disney animator (and creator of Goofy) Art Babbitt; and much, much more.


Here is some footage of Marge Champion acting as a live action model for Snow White.

Mrs. Champion talked about a book called Hippo in a Tutu that looks at the role of dancing in Disney movies.

We'd like to thank Marge Champion and Gordon Ho for taking the time to talk with Steven at the D23 Expo.
