Ian’s impressive array of accents includes: London, Northern English Accents (Yorkshire, Lancashire, Liverpool), Various Scottish Accents (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen), West Country, Midlands, Welsh, Irish. Also South African, Australian, US (Generic, Southern).
He’s also been hired as a Dutch English speaker, Caribbean and East African. So the list goes on. If you can supply a sample he can probably imitate it!
He has been a bunny, a cat, a dog, a horse and a pig and if you need him to be a dripping tap he can do that too! In short, if you have a project that needs a voice, Ian can step up to the plate and hit a home run!
