"A voice so smooth he could sell prophylactics to the Pope"
- The Guardian
Hugely versatile, with an extraordinary range of accents and styles.
The Evening Standard calls Kerry Shale ‘The best-known American voice on Radio 4’. He has played more characters in a single video game than any other actor (it’s in the Guinness Book of Records).
He has recorded hundreds of episodes of television animation (from Dennis The Menace’s faithful Gnasher to Thomas The Tank Engine’s Fat Controller), performed tricky voice-overs (“external leakage” pills), accurate imitations (Speedy Gonzales, as approved by Warner Bros) and serious narration (EIA’s campaign against animal torture).
