One day neuroscience will explain the special ‘wiring’ which allows some actors to mimic and perform, truthfully and persuasively, other human voices.
Because of the Babe and Happy Feet movies, I’ve had the good fortune to work with several artists gifted in this way. Not least among them, Hank Azaria and Robin Williams.
Lee Perry shares their genius.
Few would know this, but I relied heavily on Lee during the making of Mad Max: Fury Road to which he contributed many voices - male and female, young and old, in a variety of accents. His work not only added polish but rescued some flawed scenes.
What he does is a kind of magic.
