Getting out of the way

Last one for the year... Now, Benedict Cumberbach is a fantastic actor, as everyone knows.

But this video is a great example, not of him acting and him being big and bold and ceentre stage. No - this is what you learn as an experienced voice actor that sometimes you need to 'get out of the way'. Let the pictures tell the story, and do not over power them with your bellowing mellifluous tones!

All Benedict does is give a great subtle read, an even keel, even pace... and let the pictures deliver the emotion. He is the bedrock upon which this piece is built - not the mountainous peak..

This trailer offers a unique glimpse of some of the BBC's biggest upcoming dramas, including The Casual Vacancy, an adaptation of JK Rowling's novel, Roald Dahl's Esio Trot, The Missing, One Child and The Interceptor.
