Kids Tv Taught Sheen To Mimic
FROST/NIXON star MICHAEL SHEEN learned how to impersonate famous figures on the big screen, by watching kids TV with his young daughter.
The British actor, who famously portrayed ex-British Prime Minister Tony Blair in 2006 film The Queen, plays veteran journalist David Frost in the new movie, and admits he became an expert in mimicking other famous voices, thanks to nine-year-old Lily, his daughter with ex-girlfriend Kate Beckinsale.
Sheen says, "My daughter would watch a children's film so many times that she wanted to be the characters. So I found myself having to be them too. I realised the more I'd do it, the more I actually did become them."
