Caitlin Sanchez, the most recent voice of Dora the Explorer, is now suing Nickelodeon. According to the lawsuit she claims that she was entered into an unfair contract with Nickelodeon. Caitlin was the voice of Dora since 2008 but was let go recently when her voice matured and did not have the young-child sound. Caitlin was the second person to do the Voice of Dora, before that it was voiced by Kathleen Herles.
According to the New York Daily News:
The suit charges Caitlin and her parents were pressured by Nickelodeon and her own agent – Jason Bercy of the Cunningham Escott Slevin Doherty Talent Agency – into signing a 14-page contract without the aid of a lawyer.
Bercy, who is not named as a defendant in the suit, gave the Sanchez family 22 minutes to review the contract, threatening that if they didn’t sign Nickelodeon would “pass on Caitlin for the part of Dora,” the suit claims.
