When you watch your favourite animated movie or TV show, have you ever stopped to wonder who the voice behind the character is? Sometimes, they’ll be voice actors who aren’t known to the mainstream, however in more cases than not, they’ll be famous big-screen actors who you know for roles in a whole host of different films and shows.
In fact, playing a guessing game as to who voices certain characters can be lots of fun and you’ll often be surprised as to who is actually behind some when you find out! As an example, did you know that it was Michael J. Fox (better known for his role in the Back To The Future trilogy) who voiced Stuart Little, that loveable squeaky mouse? No, neither did we! How about The Black Eyed Peas’ Fergie as the voice behind Sally Brown in ‘The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show?’
UK based voice-over agency, Matinée Multilingual recently put together a fantastic infographic which looks at ‘The Voices Behind The Characters’ and featured 15 of the big screen’s best voice actors. There’s some that we knew but just as many that we didn’t and we think you’ll find some real surprises in there!
