Recently I was asked to voice a spoof Thunderbirds radio commercial in a style with a flavour of Lady Penelope. It was a particularly fun one to do, and thought it worth sharing with you. My multi-talented colleague Darren Altman plays both a ‘Parker’ type character, and also that of the announcer:
What I didn’t realise at the time though, is that Thunderbirds is about to make a come back… Earlier this month it was revealed that Rosamund Pike is to lend her voice to the role of Lady Penelope in a re-make of Thunderbirds entitled Thunderbirds Are Go! for ITV.
I also found out today that the character, Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, was based on Sylvia Anderson, the co-creator of the show, who also voiced the part. Sylvia reveals more about her life and past Thunderbirds times in an article today featured in The Independent, as part of ITV’s Thunderbirds Are Go! launch.
