The Person Behind Charles

 
We all know about Chucky. His tale is infamous and of course his targets are numerous. He is insolent and despicable and Charles is no exception. For a voice over actor to get into a character and also trying to figure out how that character’s voice should sound is quite a challenge. But we are talking about Chucky here. It’s not only about the doll but who is behind that doll. It is true that every project is different and every voice actor’s method varies but this one is different… Brad Dourif has a very distinct tone and laugh and that is why he is a central pillar to this character. Shannon is a gifted actor and has this maniacal energy that is required for this one-liner cursing murderous doll. We all love Brad Dourif and he will always be our Chucky. To me, Dourif is so iconic in this role and him and Chucky are basically the same person in my head. If anyone can match Brad Dourif, it’s Shannon Morris. We all know nobody can replace Brad Dourif but this is definitely a solid choice. Tony Bizz took Chucky back to his dark roots and with the help of Shannon, a talented voice actor, who has a lot to live up to, certainly worked perfectly in this film’s favor.
