Paddington 2 Cast: Who’s Voice is That?
Ever watch a movie and think “I know that voice sounds familiar” or “I’ve seen that face before!”? When I’m home, it’s easy enough for me to look up, say, Paddington 2 cast, on my phone and find out right away. At the theater, though, pulling out your phone is incredibly rude (yep, even if you’re not planning to talk on it, the light from your phone is annoying to those around you, so please leave it in your pocket). Since I know that it will bug me throughout the entire movie, I like to look up the cast before I head out to the theater! If you’re the same way, here’s a glance at the Paddington 2 cast!
1. Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington
Ben Whishaw was named by many critics as one of the best young actors, but aside from the first movie, your kids probably haven’t seen much of him yet. He’s mostly played in movies for adults (grownup movies, not “adult” movies!). You might recognize him from Cloud Atlas. He also played in several episodes of “The Hour,” and “Criminal Intent.” If your kids fell in love with his voice as Paddington, they’ll love him as Michael Banks in the upcoming film Mary Poppins Returns.
2. Imelda Staunton as the voice of Aunt Lucy
Paddington’s big adventure starts when he’s trying to save up money to buy a gift for aunt Lucy, voiced by Imelda Staunton. If you’re wondering why her voice raises your hackles a bit, here’s why: she played Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter movies. She’s also played in countless British films, and lent her voice to the Tall Flower Faces in Alice in Wonderland.
3. Michael Gambon as the voice of Uncle Pastuzo
Of all the voices of the Paddington 2 cast, Michael Gambon should be the most familiar to both you and your kids. He played Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies after Richard Harris passed away. Harris played the wise wizard in the first two flicks. Even if your family isn’t into Harry Potter, there’s a good chance both you and your kids have seen Michael Gambon in another role. He has over 160 acting credits to his name!
The Paddington 2 cast has many other talented actors in the live-action roles as well, including Madeleine Harris as Judy Brown, Samuel Joslin as Jonathan Brown, and Sally Hawkins as Mary Brown.
