Elizabeth Hartman
(December 23, 1943 - June 10, 1987) was the voice of Mrs. Brisby in The Secret of NIMH, at the age of 38 (the film was released on July 2, 1982), in her last Hollywood role. Like her character, Hartman was also shy.

On June 10, 1987, four years, eleven months, and eight days after the film's release, she fell to her death from her apartment window on the fifth floor, which people believe to be a suicide.
