Guessing the Season 3 voice actors
« on: January 12, 2018, 03:15:04 AM »
When a Wikipedia part about Season three's voice actors end with "these roles are currently difficult for fans to identify who played which role, as the series 3 credits only listed the actors names and not the roles they played"

Which makes me wonder if people who write these credits for the characters as to who voiced them are only guessing based on the way they sound and vocal tone alone.

So citation needed.

I’m not sure about how to identify all the roles and it’s hard to find who even Holly was voiced by? Did anyone ever figure out who did his raspy vocals? :holly

I'm leaning towards Lee Ross/Hawkbit for Holly, but I'm not sure...it's really annoying how everyone isn't credited by character, and instead we just get a list of names..

Yeah, it can be hard to guess what certain voice actors and actresses were doing the replaced roles back then but at least with the Internet, it became easier to identify as the years rolled on.

Rob Rackstraw to me did a good job with Hickory in Season 3 given he seemed to imitate what Kiefer Sutherland gave with the calm father voice.

Poor Holly never had a credit for who voiced him. He sounded nice for one of the few elder characters on the show but the standard and Watership wiki pages don’t list who did him. If it’s Lee Ross, then yay but he doesn’t have a twitter so we can’t ask him that and he has no other social media :hawkbit

Spartina also fell victim to the “unknown voice actor” info too because the Watership wiki says she’s voiced by an unknown voice actress and the regular Wikipedia doesn’t list her in the voice cast at all :spartina

Ah yes but who voiced Hazel and Dandelion?
