In December 2019, after his stint as London Mayor, Boris Johnson secured his first full term as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Throughout his political career he has been without doubt the gift that keeps on giving, with his numerous political gaffs, amusing turn of phrases, random quotes in Latin and unconventional behaviour! Let’s not mention Brexit!
As full time voiceover artist and celebrity impressionist, I’m contacted regularly by production companies and clients who require a Boris Johnson impression.
I’ve delivered several DeepFake Boris Johnson’s, where his face is masked over either existing footage of the PM, or over my face! The results can be incredible. Check out my first 2 videos below, to see examples of the clever deep fake technology at work. This was featured by the BBC.
Boris’ Speaking Manner
Boris Johnson has a very distinctive voice. He was schooled in Eton and Oxford and has what could be described as a well-spoken or upper class voice. His tone is rich and deep and he often stumbles and stutters his way through sentences, in a somewhat clumsy and awkward manner. You can often hear Boris talking at varying speeds, pausing to contemplate, while accentuating random word in his sentences! He has an interesting was of saying his S’s which is rather interesting and I’ve taken time to study the way his mouth and teeth land when he makes his S sounds. He also has a slight underbite, which also adds to his sound and gives more detail when capturing his character.
