Besides being an actress, Emma is also a dubber. On Dolittle she voices a nice macaw.
Doctor Dolittle is famous for his ability to talk to animals, taught precisely by his parrot friend Polynesia, voiced by Emma Thompson.
Polynesia (Poly for short), serves as Dolittle’s most trusted advisor and confidant.
Emma talks about her dress on the Graham Norton Show. She voices a parrot named Poly, in the film “Dolittle”, that’s why she is dressed like that!
Look at the following video, she is just hilarious as usual! 😂
Emma: I went into Selfridges and I said: “have you got anything that would make me look like a parrot?”. And they said: “Right this way, Madame!”.
“When I came out, I then realized that they had made me look like a parrot that had mated with Elton John! But I’m quite happy“.
I translate for my Italian friends.
Emma racconta: entrai da Selfridges (nota catena britannica di grandi magazzini) e chiesi: “Avete qualcosa che mi faccia sembrare un pappagallo?”. E loro risposero: “ Certo, signora!”.
“Quando uscii, mi resi conto che mi avevano fatto sembrare sì un pappagallo, che però si era accoppiato con Elton John! Ma sono abbastanza contenta”.
