Are you searching for a voice for your project similar to the British actor Leslie Phillips? Then you’ve come to the right place! I’m a voiceover artist and celebrity impressionist and one of the voices I get asked to deliver is a Leslie Phillips impression. Recently, Leslie’s voice has become synonymous with the IAMS cat food commercials and I was honoured to be asked to take over from Leslie, voicing the national IAMS Cat Food radio adverts. Big shoes to fill! The brief was to retain his suave delivery style and give the cat a very elegant, feline manner but with a modern twist. Here’s the advert:
Leslie Phillips’ Voice Style
From his early films such as The Thief of Bagdad (1940) and The Galloping Major (1951) to his appearances in the classic Carry on films such as Carry On Nurse (1959) and Carry On Constable (1960), he has always maintained a suave, sophisticated persona and he definitely had the voice to match! His tone can be described as quintessentially English, typifying the classic English gentleman, you could call it RP, ‘posh’ or ‘upper class!’
So how will that affect my project?
Having a Leslie Phillips style voice for your video, advert or presentation will definitely add an air of class and sophistication. Those silky tones will make your voiceover stand out from the rest, whether it’s to enhance your brand or as part of a parody. Let me know how I can be of service and I’ll be happy to work with you to ensure you get the style you require.
I’m passionate about delivering the very best voiceover and working with clients to ensure that they receive the style of voice that best represents their brand. If you need me to demo for you, I’ll be more than happy to read for you and if you need characters, then get in touch and we can discuss what you have in mind.
