Thanks for visiting. This page features some fun audio and video examples from Brian Blessed Impressionist, Darren Altman.
One of the most distinctive voices in Britain has to be Brian Blessed. His trademark booming sound can be heard on countless radio and tv adverts, as well as cartoons such as Peppa Pig. As soon as you hear it, your ears can’t help but to prick up!
Brian Blessed Impressionist
As a voiceover artist and celebrity impressionist, I’m often asked to voice in the style of Brian, as lots of companies want his big, bombastic sound. As an actor, the most famous Brian Blessed role has to be his portrayal of Prince Voltan in the movie Flash Gordon and everyone remembers the iconic line “Gordon’s alive?!”
When performing an impersonation of Brian, it’s not all about yelling and booming at the top of your voice. Brian is of course a skilled actor and has total command of his volume and timbre. He has a very distinctive whispered sound and it’s important to be able to speak in his hushed tones, as well as his bombastic voice.
