Yup, David Holt was indeed Vervain's voice. :)

OT: I have read all The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy novels, except for the sixth one. Reading the series felt like having your brain smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick.

I know that Hannah (Jane Horrocks) does the voice over on a TV advert for train tickets over here, appeared in a Tesco advert, and apparently she did some voices in Phineas and Ferb.

It was last year when I found this out, but John Hurt plays a minor character in the movie Alien.

It was the famous scene when John Hurt's character had the alien burst out of his chest. God I love that movie.

John Hurt is a great actor and yes I loved  the Alien scene also. Loved him in the role of the Elephant Man in the movie with Anthony Hopkins  although of course  he was obviously unrecognizable...and as the Duke of Argyle ( I think that was his title) in ROB ROY.

Oh David Holt voices Vervain? Well let's see what else he's done...



 :woundwort  :spit

YELLOW MONKEY?! Seriously? *tries to remember voice* Hmm that could be...

YEP THAT'S HIM

(Ape Escape is weird in that the US and EU versions have different dubs. It's annoyingly difficult to find the EU dub on Youtube but luckily there's this playthrough^^)

Imagine Vervain saying this to Hazel or Bigwig!
 :vervain2 "My lord Woundwort has asked me to get rid of you, you pesky little prima donna."

 :vervain "Cute does aren't really my thing."

Brilliant. My day has been made. :hannah4

I'm watching the video and all I hear is Vervain's voice! That's pretty funny. I can picture everything and it's great :p

I looked for the scene with the boy character as well since the dialogue's completely different but I can't find the EU version on Youtube.

So very tempted to start up the game and listen to it...

David Holt also voiced Shere Khan in the Jungle Book tv series. That's pretty cool but I'm guessing he'll sound different then.
