Celebrities that lend their voices to films

News November 28, 2017

The voice is very important for actors and sometimes is the hallmark of their success. Who can forget Fran Drescher and her nasal voice in “The Nanny”? Recently some actors and actresses are lending their voices for animated characters in movies. Although the producers are aiming to gain the audience introducing a celebrity in the voice cast, there’s too an interest in a peculiar way of playing a voice, like the Spanish accent.

That’s what brought to spanish actor Antonio Banderas and the mexican actress Salma Hayek playing animated characters in “Puss in Boots”, the Shrek spin-off. The producers needed some spanish flavor, and that’s exactly what they did with these two actors.

Despite the fact that voice performers never show up on the screen, they should be quite talented actors cause the goal is convey their lines efficaciously. Keep in mind that in some ways, voice acting is more troublesome than different sorts of acting since you don’t have different on-screen characters to work off of and the group of onlookers can’t see your outward appearances, hand motions, or developments. You don’t have props or different devices to help in your communication. Your full feelings and identity must be communicated exclusively through your voice.
