Bobby driscoll

Bobby Driscoll, the voice of Peter Pan. His story is tragic. He was a child star, and afterwards, other kids made fun of him, he became a drug addict by 17, and he died at 31:( I love this movie, and this was depressing and kind of ruined my childhood. I still love Peter Pan no matter what though.
