Talk:Harry Dread

From Discworld & Terry Pratchett Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

After discovering in passing in The Last Hero, that Harry is very probably Llamedosian, the ideal referent to play him in any adaptation must be Welsh comic actor Rob Brydon. Brydon could do it all with the right degree of shifty untrustworthiness as well as a physical cringing stoop, and Harry's dialogue calls out for the worst sort of slightly nasal, whining, complaining, snidey, self-pitying South Wales accent. (I'm not getting at SouthWelians here, honestly, and I KNOW you're not all like that, but people of the above character type do exist, right? Be honest! And Rob Brydon could do that sort of Welsh character to the very letter.)--AgProv 13:30, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
