Biography

The daughter of a commercial director, Dana Hill began acting as a teen after diabetes derailed her athletic career. Guest appearances in television series led to bigger roles during the early 1980s, including the part of Gabrielle "Gabby" Gallagher in "The Two of Us", a sitcom that aired from 1981 to 1982. Around this time, Hill also scored critical acclaim for the small screen film "Fallen Angel", in which she played Jennifer Phillips, a shy 12-year-old who finds herself targeted by child pornographers. While she was already 17 when "Fallen Angel" was released, her diabetes contributed to a youthful appearance that proved very convincing. Over the next few years, Hill was cast in several critically-acclaimed dramas, including '82's "Shoot the Moon", in which she played the angry daughter of separating parents. She also co-starred in the Oscar-nominated '83 drama "Cross Creek" as Ellie, an adolescent girl who keeps a pet deer. During the mid-80s, she landed the part of Audrey Griswold in "European Vacation", the second in the popular comedy series starring Chevy Chase. The movie did well at the box office, but due to health problems Hill began switching to voice acting a few years later. She was very prolific over the next decade or so, voicing characters in popular Disney shows like "Goof Troop", in which she played pre-adolescent protagonist Max Goof, and "Darkwing Duck". Hill also provided the voices of several supporting characters in the Nickelodeon series "Rugrats".
