Lots of film actors of yore, trained in the theatre, had terrific voices: Richard Burton, John Gielgud, Helen Hayes, Orson Welles, James Mason, Sean Connery, Katherine Hepburn. Even in lesser fare, it was a pleasure listening to them speak.
But I can't, offhand, think of one young actor or actress today who has a truly distinctive voice. There are some older ones, like Philip Seymour Hoffman or Kristin Scott Thomas, who are distinctive. Are there younger actors I haven't thought of who are a terrific pleasure to hear deliver lines? Or is the great movie voice a dying breed?
