Resources: Clips Stephen Colbert, for a reason I’ll discuss later
Accent: La Accent, but also, all powerful alien, so you know
Tone: Deep and bass, from the throat, quiet and soft
Speech pattern: Slow, emphasis on words, Allow the words to come up from the throat, then delay before releasing them, ‘Children Born have known nothing…’ The trail off, ‘you should have gone for the head’
Trigger words: Born, Gamora
Body Language: relatable goal carry a burden, essentially a conservationist, he’s like david attenborough but with a big glove and likes genocide, so he’s pained, and also rather strong, he’s a big strong muscle boy, try and broaden yourself out, one step ahead at all times, you want that burden on your shoulders feeling to come through in your voice, like a strain. Not too dissimilarilar to morgan freeman, if you imagine you have something in your mouth, it gives that
Case Study: Studying the actor for a character
