Nicole Jaffe, the original voice actor of Velma, was responsible for Heather North getting the role of Daphne in the second season of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?. Heather North and Nicole Jaffe were currently roommates at the time the show began airing. Jaffe was aware that Indira Stefanniana Christopherson had planned to leave the show due to her marriage. Knowing North was an aspiring voice actress, Jaffe recommended her to William Hanna and Joseph Barbera to fill the role of Daphne which Christopherson left. Heather North would go on to be the voice of Daphne for the next 15 years (as well as her brief return in 2003 for the two cast reunion films), while Jaffe would leave three short years later due to her marriage.
