Meet The New Voice Of Dora The Explorer

Fatima Ptacek

Introducing…. Fatima Ptacek!

This totally adorbz 11-year-old girl from Queens is about to become one of the world's most recognizable voices: Dora The Explorer.

The sixth grader, who will replace the actress that has played Dora since 2000, is highly qualified. Having appeared in nearly 50 television commercials and a wide-variety of print ads, Fatima is well aquatinted with show biz.

She's also a long-time fan of the Explorer. She says:

“I’ve been watching Dora for as long as I remember, I’ve grown up with Dora. Being the voice of Dora, I can’t even get over it, it’s such an honor.”

Naturally, Fatima is bilingual (cause it'd be so awkward if she wasn't). She has signed a three-year contract with Nickelodeon — which means the public school student will be voicing Dora when she starts high school.

We're sure her paycheck will totes make up for all the Map and Swipper jokes she's sure to encounter over the few years.
