Welcome to Tinker Bell Talks, the official
web site of Margaret Kerry, the original alter-ego, actor
and reference model for the famous pixie from Walt Disney's
Margaret has been an actor all her life (starting
with the "Our Gang" comedies when she was four.)
Just out of her teens, she was picked to be the live-action
reference model for Tinker Bell for the Walt Disney film,
Peter Pan. Margaret became known as "Two-Take
Tink" as she was filmed capturing the perky essence of
the famous little fairy. No more than two takes were needed
to satisfy Disney director Marc Davis, the world-renowned
animator who also designed the character of the little sprite.
Davis would describe the scene he wantedand Margaret
would come up with a jealous pout, a hip-swiveling walk, or
a flash of angeralong with Tink's other dramatic antics.
At the age of 22, Margaret improvised the antics
of Tink on Disney's Sound Stage One. Backed by a huge arc
of canvas on the otherwise empty stage, she was strongly backlit
to emphasize her curvy figure as she was being filmed. This
footage was then given to several animators. Each time their
completed scenes would flash on the screen... there was three-and-a-half
inch Tinker Bell looking just like five-foot-two Margaret
