Samuel E. Wright, Sebastian — Disney Animals Then and Now


Then: Though he had a string of film and television roles under his belt, Wright was better known on Broadway, where he won a Tony Award in 1984 for his performance in the musical ‘The Tap Dance Kid.’ ‘The Little Mermaid’ was his first animated effort.

NOW: Funny enough, Wright won his second Tony in 1998 for playing Mufasa in ‘The Lion King’ on Broadway. He went on to reprise Sebastian in TV shows, straight-to-video sequels and spin-offs up until 2008, when he quietly retired.
