Tom Turns On The Magic


February 9, 2005  •  Posted By Shaun Lyon
Today's Liverpool Echo ran a story about Tom Baker, who is said to be facing a challenge in the film version of The Magic Roundabout. Tom was given a part in the movie, due at the end of the week, thanks to his disctinctive voice. "Tom has such a huge, mellifluous fun voice. He can play the camp villain absolutely magnificently, and that's what he"s done," says director Cameron McCracken. Baker waxes on the role: "I mostly earn my living on my voice now, because I haven't got the force in my legs to run anymore, even when I'm being pursued in Waitrose where I am a sex symbol for lecherous old upper class ladies of about 85."
