‘I’m a massive, massive fan of Doc McStuffins and for me this is really surreal. I spend most of my time, and most of my day when I’m with my daughter talking about Doc and watching Doc McStuffins.

‘My favourite character on the show is by far Doc. She is an incredible role model, you know, she’s a female doctor, she’s strong willed, she’s smart, she’s kind, she’s compassionate, and she celebrates everything wonderful about being a woman.’

Alesha follows in the footsteps of Doc McStuffins’ previous high-profile celebrity guest stars, including First Lady Michelle Obama and Downtown Abbey stars Joanne Froggatt and Lesley Nicol.

We are chuffed to bits for our friends at HIT Entertainment…….we can finally announce that the brilliant and Oscar-winning Eddie Redmayne will lend his voice to Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure, which is being released to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Thomas & Friends.

Redmayne will voice new engine Ryan, while John Hurt provides the voice of Sailor John, and Jamie Campbell Bower who voices the sailing vessel Skiff.says Michelle Jones animation casting director

“I grew up loving to watch Thomas and his pals getting caught up in unexpected and mischievous adventures,” Redmayne said. “I jumped at the opportunity to get involved and what fun it was! I have never voiced an animated character before, and I had a complete blast.”

Hurt, who plays Sailor John, added: “I remember watching Thomas the Tank Engine with my children when they were young and I’m delighted that it continues to appeal to each successive generation.

“I enjoy working vocally and have voiced many animated characters. Sailor John was something of a departure from what I usually do and a lot of fun to play.”

Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure will be released on DVD in 2015.

Animation Casting Director – Michelle Jones

Brilliant Casting.


Disney XD wanted to raise awareness of the TV animated show Phineas and Ferb here in the UK. Using finished episodes, which hadn’t yet aired in the UK, Michelle cast four household names into cameo roles. Simon Pegg was cast as Paul the delivery man, Jonathan Ross as the Ducky Salesman, Lenny Henry as Iggy and Lorraine Kelly as The Judge. National press, TV and online coverage for the star talent casting initiative was huge to say the least! Were our star talent happy too? “Yes, yes, I think they were!”
