When I'm describing a hero's voice, I often wish I could cut out the linguistic middleman and just say, 'Look, he sounded a lot like Alan Rickman, okay?'
Let's face it, not many heroes sound like Donald Duck. A deep voice, resonating from the chest, seems favourite, though a smooth purr is also good. Best of all, a foreign accent. Any foreign accent at all, but at the moment I'm leaning towards anything Eastern European.
What about you?
