What would Shrek be without his Scottish accent? Can you even imagine it?

An interesting, entertaining "untold" story from Resnick Interactive about the casting and recording of "Shrek."

 

An important post script...while much is made of Mike Meyers use of a Scottish accent in the article, adding the accent alone isn't what made "Shrek" the phenomenal success that it became. He gave the character a soul and vulnerability, which was inspired from listening to his mother' tell him bedtime stories. (Oddly, it kind of sounds as though "Shrek" is actually "Mrs. Doubtfire" in double reverse drag!) 

 

We always remind students who aspire to become character voice actors to bear in mind that the root of the word "animate" is "soul" and to animate means to "give soul to;" and not "give a funny voice to."
