And now… he’s DEAD. Even if you don’t know his name, you’d know him the moment he spoke to you. You know all those movie trailers with the narrated soundtrack in a booming, sonorous American accent? That’s Don.
My personal favourite, out of the thousands of movie trailers he narrated? Undoubtedly the most miscast one: ‘Miss Potter’. Somehow, the trailer for a tale of an English country children’s author sounded like a secret agent thriller, full of double agents named Flopsy, Bopsy, and Cottontail.
Goodbye, Don. You’ll be remembered.
