Whether you’re watching a movie or a TV show, when it comes to animations and cartoons, more often than not, the main characters are voiced by famous actors who you’d recognise in an instant if you were to see them. When it’s only their voice being used, however, it can become a little more difficult. Sometimes, you’re able to instantly identify the actor behind a voice, but with others, you’d never in a million years have guessed who it was! The art of the voice-over really is an interesting one and playing the guessing game of ‘whose voice is that’ can be really frustrating yet be great fun at the same time!
When you pay attention to the end credits on a movie or show, you’ll often be surprised as to who has lent their voice to one or more of the characters and in some instances, stars of the big screen even started their careers as a voice actor.
The team at Matinée Multilingual have put together a great inforgraphic featuring 15 ‘Voices Behind the Characters’. Some you may know, others maybe not - there’s a few surprises in there!
