I would say no. Just another Scottish voice over actor told to sound like John Hannah, probably.

I think it's the same person that does the co-op "good with food" adverts.

Er....that IS John Hannah!

The "good with food" that is....not the one JRedd is asking about.

Just rung Vodafone - got nowere. Have now emailed for answer.

Thought advertisers could not use sound alike voice-over impersonators?

I have just listened to the ad again with the sound turned up. I agree the accent/voice is similar to John Hannah's but the reason I don't think it's him is the accent just isn't as strong as Hannah's...not just in "good with food" but in the actor's other ads/his acting generally.

It's 2-2. I and Mrs Redd say no, while Mr Redd and lolo say yes. We need a casting vote!

Incidentally, re your call to Vodafone I'm afraid that is typical. Why most companies are so secretive about actors' identities is beyond me but they are.
