Machiko Soga, the actress who played Rita Repulsa on "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" has died of cancer. She passed Sunday at the age of 63.

This was a big shocker. Such a prominent figure in kids TV in the 90s. She'll definetly be missed by many. Triste

Wow - what a surprise. I wish I'd been able to see a Japanese version of the show with the original audio - I only know her as Rita with that creepy dubbed English voice on the original Power Rangers. Tire la langue

You know, I never really noticed that the show was dubbed Rire
I was probably too young!

Before I understood the concept of dubbing, it really creeped me out that her spoken words didn't match the way her lips were moving! Rire

Rire
British TV rarely shows anything dubbed, and when I saw the Asterix live-action films dubbed into English it seemed really weird. It's probably because I'm not used to seeing stuff like that.
