I have just received the script for episode 01 of “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” – an upcoming audio drama which is put together by a very talented American student. I will be voicing one of the main characters, Allan Quatermain, as well as Campion Bond, a shadowy snobbish MI5 agent.
The audio drama is a conversion from comic to audio which means, I have to dig into the comics to get a feeling for what is going on in the individual scenes and how the characters interact. Together with the script, I can work out on how to best voice Allan Quatermain (who is significantly older than my voice is). Campion Bond on the other hand was quite easy to figure out – upper class British accent!
My fellow voice actors in the roles of Mina Murray, Captain Nemo, The Invisible Man and Jekyll & Hyde are all experts in their field and I am sure that the audio drama will be something quite special.
