While it remains to be seen if any of the voice actors working today can equal the long-term success of Walt Disney, here are the ten biggest earners currently working as voice actors in the industry today.
10. Julie Kavner
Not surprisingly, many of the highest paid voice actors working today are associated with The Simpsons, the longest-running animated program in the U.S. and widely considered one of the most successful television shows ever created.
