Gillian Walton's voice is upbeat as Mary, who is called May by the older brother and sister who raise her. Though she was orphaned at a young age, May is chipper about her life, even though we meet her in the midst of major transitions. Her sister has decided to travel the world, her brother gets a garden job at Thorton Hall, and, more than ever, May thinks her life resembles that of Mary, the heroine of her favorite video, THE SECRET GARDEN. Walton's passionate tones convey May's enthusiasm as she creates a secret garden with her new friend, Alex, helps him understand his relationship with his father, and maintains her curiosity for her unfolding life.
