    I'm a natural-born actor (well, aren't we all!). As the voice changes and adapts so, too, does every facet of body language and expression. I'm also a talented vocal mimic and natural wit (at least, I think it's pronounced 'wit' :-)

    Short description of my voice

    An extraordinary vocal scale, ranging from the velvety kiss of a fine single malt to the gravelly texture of a barbed wire vest. From the lilting undulations of a hillside vista to the blatant subtlety of a brick through yer window....in a multitude of characters, as well as authentic national and international accents.

    Additional Information

    I can authentically mimic most accents I'm exposed to. Indeed, Glaswegian and Irish friends often remark: 'Sh*t, Nige! You do a better Scottish/Irish (as applicable) accent than I do!' However, the accents I've listed in the appropriate sections are those I can 'drop' into with little-to-no warning...and often do, simply because some things sound better in a particular accent.

    The YouTube link provided is a 'work in progress'. The 'Rudolph Hart' entries were recorded in one single take and are wholly and entirely unscripted and unrehearsed.
