If you use your own accent, you have to work doubly hard to find the 'voice' of the character. My theory is that because I have a musical ear, I can pick up on accents pretty quickly. I am grateful for this, as it certainly comes in handy! I have done Scottish, American, London, Irish, RP (Received Pronunciation, also known as the "typically British" accent) and lots of others.

I reckoned that Angus had been in a few physical scrapes and I felt that specific aesthetic lent itself to the role. The accent was worked on with the wonderful voice coach, Carol Anne Crawford, but I think that the real 'voice' of the character (which is often confused with the accent) is found through different rhythms, personal acting choices and research. Grant O'Rourke (Rupert) and I improvised within the parameters of the script - mostly - but I personally added lots of quirks and mannerisms to Angus that were not specifically written. Hide
