Jaclyn Linetsky, the English voice of Caillou in the animated series produced by CINAR
, died at the age of 17 on September 8, 2003, in a fatal automobile crash in Montreal.
"Jaclyn's voice enchanted thousands of children and viewers and she brought her own special personality and character to Caillou, said CINAR president/ceo Stuart Snyder. She was a very talented performer and will be deeply missed by us all."
"On behalf of everyone at CINAR, I want to express our most sincere and heartfelt sympathies to Jaclyn's family," Snyder said.
Linetsky was the English-language voice of Caillou, CINAR's popular cartoon character, for episodes 66 through 98, which were delivered to broadcasters between February 2000 through January 2002, including on PBS in the U.S. She was also the voice of Meg in MEGA BABIES, produced by CinéGroupe in Canada.
