The role of Peppa Pig is a “dream come true” for the nine-year-old actress who is taking over as the voice of the much-loved cartoon character.
Amelie Bea Smith is the fourth voice artist to bring the famous pig to life in the pre-school animated British TV series, which has become a hit around the world.
Smith is following in the footsteps of Harley Bird, 18, who has voiced Peppa from the age of five, and won a Bafta for the role in 2011.
