About Tony Jay

Tony Jay (2 February 1933 – 13 August 2006) was an English actor, voice artist, and singer. A former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, he was known for his voice work in radio, animation, film, and video games. Jay was particularly well known for his distinctive baritone voice, which often led to him being cast in villainous roles. He was best known as the voice of Judge Claude Frollo in Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), Megabyte in ReBoot (1994–2001), Shere Khan in The Jungle Book 2 and the TV series TaleSpin, and the Elder God (plus various other roles) in the Legacy of Kain series of video games. Jay also made many distinguished on-screen appearances, including the role of Nigel St John on Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993–1995). He further made guest appearances on programs including The Golden Girls in 1987, Twin Peaks in 1990-91, and Night Court in 1991. His most prominent onscreen role, however, is that of Professor Werner in Twins (1988), the mentor to Arnold Schwarzenegger's protagonist, Julius Benedict.

Death

In April 2006 Jay underwent surgery in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (Los Angeles) to remove a non-cancerous tumor from his lungs. Afterwards he became critically ill and was readmitted to Cedar Sinai, where he died on August 13, 2006, aged 73. He was survived by his wife Marta, his son Adam, his brother Robert, his sister-in-law Lynda, his nephew Rylan, his niece Natasha, and his mother Ethel (aged 99 at the time of his death). Jay is buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles, California.
