Rupert Degas

Rupert Degas (born in London, August 17, 1970) is a British actor who narrates a series of cassettes audiobooks about Sonic the Hedgehog published by Ladybird in the UK.


Rupert began his career dubbing films as apprentice to 'the man of a thousand voices' Robert Rietty. BBC Radio followed, where Rupert honed his craft with maverick director Dirk Maggs. Soon Rupert was in demand as a voice actor in video-games and animation, spending eight years on Bob the Builder and working regularly for the likes of Turner, Disney, LucasArts, EA Games and Sony.

When the world of advertising came knocking, he quickly became one of the most sought after retail voiceovers in London, working on hundreds of campaigns with some of the world's top agencies. He has also voiced over 5,000 TV and radio promos; and for a laugh, you can catch some of his crazy characters every day on comedy radio station Mansize Radio.

Rupert has won critical acclaim in the UK and the USA for his prolific audiobook work, having narrated over 100 titles; and as an actor he has appeared frequently on stage and screen, most notably in the West End productions of 'Stones in his Pockets' and 'The 39 Steps', for which he and his fellow cast members won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy.
