Indira Stefanianna, (born Indira Stefanianna Christopherson, on December 15, 1946) and also credited as Indira Danks, Stefanianna Christopherson, and Indira Stefanianna, is an American singer and actress of Icelandic heritage who is perhaps best known for her role as the original voice of Daphne Blake on Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!.
Christopherson has worked as a character actor, stage actress, and recording artist in addition to her voice work. At the age of 18, she moved to Iceland and had a singing career in several languages. After returning to the United States, Ms. Christopherson started her stage career by appearing in such productions as The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (directed by Andrei Serban) at The Public Theater, and off-Broadway in Harry Ruby's Songs My Mother Never Sang (directed by Paul Lazarus) and Noo Yawk Tawk (directed by Richmond Shepard), in addition to several movie and television roles. She was also the original voice of Daphne Blake on Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! for the first season before taking leave to move to New York to get married. Her replacement for the rest of the series (and various spinoffs and specials in the franchise through 1997) was Heather North. She also provided the voice of Princess Dawn in Here Comes the Grump at the same time she was voicing Daphne. She is also well known for penning and singing commercial jingles and songs. She sang in the AT&T jingle Reach Out and Touch Someone, with music composed by David Lucas, and won a Clio Award. She also performed voiceovers for Scholastic Media in Clifford the Big Red Dog and the so-called series Your Community Changes Every Day (for which she won the DuKane Citizenship Award).
