Andy Garcia’s voice makes my heart go pitty-pat… There’s just something about his deep, gruff, velvet voice that is so appealing. My children rented “Beverly Hills Chiuaua” and I just kept imagining what Garcia would look like, with Drew Barrymore, if the leads were not dogs. Thank goodness I have a vivid imagination.
His is not the only voice that makes me quiver. Antonio Banderas… Robert Downey Jr. … Robert Pattinson… Mandy Patinkin… Patrick Stewart… Vin Diesel… Nicolas Cage… Will Smith… Denzel Washington… Patrick Dempsey… Josh Lucas… of course, the Old Spice Guy. I tend to lean toward (non-Canadian) accents when they are present. Exotic. And uniforms… give me a good-looking man in a uniform, and I’m his. Toss in the accent, and I’m in a puddle on the floor.
Now, is it important to see the faces? Well, judging from my attentiveness to BHC, no. I could be listening to them on the radio, and be purring.
