Caitlin Sanchez, the young actress who voices Dora in Dora the Explorer has dropped her lawsuit against Nickelodeon after alleging that the network underpaid her and cut her out of lucrative merchandising deals.
Caitlin will finish some future episodes, although the network has declined to say how many.
The network released a statement:
"We have always felt, and continue to feel, that Caitlin is a very talented performer. Our intention was always that Caitlin complete the episodes on which she worked, and we are pleased that she has agreed to do so."
After telling the poor girl that "her voice changed and she was no longer able to portray the Dora character," we're surprised that they even decided to let her finish out any future episodes at all!

Even though Justin Bieber can't stop the puberty train from rolling in, he's taking precautions to make sure that when his voice changes, his career isn't ruined.
The 16-year-old singer is so concerned about not being able to hit his high-pitched notes, he's decided to take tips from mentor Usher by enlisting the help of a top singing coach to help him stay in tune.
The tween idol says:
"Everyone's voice changes. Puberty is a natural thing. I have the best vocal coach in the world and we're working on my voice and doing what I need to do. It's not like as soon as you hit puberty you stop singing. Usher is the best mentor in the world and he survived puberty. He tells me what to do, what not to do."
Nice to have someone like Usher on your team and giving you advice!
