Holly G. Frankel (born July 13, 1979), also known as Holly Gauthier-Frankel, is a Canadian voice actress,[2] singer, dancer, and comedian. Frankel is best known for supplying the voice of Fern in Arthur, Sagwa in Sagwa, the Chinese Siamese Cat, Rita in Go Hugo Go and Hugo: the Movie Star, Teri in What's with Andy?, Loulou in Wimzie's House, and Flora in the Cinélume's English dub of Winx Club. She is also known for her alter-ego as burlesque performer Miss Sugarpuss, of which Holly retired in 2016.[3]


Holly is the daughter of Ron Frankel and Mary Lou Gauthier, who were former members of Malcolm Tomlinson's band Milkwood. At the age of seven, she became a voice actress after work as a studio singer for commercials.[4] Due to her status as a "showbiz kid", she was shy and was considered an outcast.

She attended CEGEP, and later graduated from McGill University. Holly developed an eating disorder as she sunk into a deep depression as she was considered "too fat" by several casting directors. She discovered burlesque at the 2004 Montreal World Film Festival.
