Mark Heenehan is an American-British actor, singer and theatre performer. He is known for voicing Tinky Winky. Heenehan only dubbed Tinky Winky's voice in the first 70 episodes where Dave Thompson performed in the suit until Simon Shelton took over the role. Mark Heenehan gave Tinky Winky a very masculine and jolly voice. Since Heenehan didn't perform in the suit, in the credits he is credited as an additional voice.
