RIP Billie Mae Richards

Canadian radio actor Billie Mae Richards passed away Friday at her home near Toronto. She was 88. But Ms. Richards' voice will live on in the Christmas classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
"Kids won't believe it when my grandchildren tell them that their grandmother is really Rudolph," Richards said in a 2005 interview with Filmfax magazine. She was credited as "Billy Richards" to mask the fact that she was a woman.

"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," based on the eponymous 1949 song, premiered in 1964 and CBS airs it to this day around the holidays.

"What better legacy can you leave than a show that everybody loves?" Richards told NPR in 2004.
