Volodymyr Zelensky- Voice of Freedom & Animated Bear

As if you couldn’t admire the man more… on top of serving as president of Ukraine, leading the people of his country in standing up to Russian invaders and Vladimir Putin, Volodymyr Zelensky has also served as the voice of everybody’s favorite marmalade loving, wellington wearing bear.

StudioCanal, the studio that made both Paddington films confirmed late Sunday night that Zelensky was the voice of the famous bear after rumors began circulating online, first started by Franklin Leonard, founder of the popular screenplay boosting Black List.

With a little searching on-line, you can find press kit video of Zelensky talking about voicing Paddington and how proud he is of the film. Meanwhile, Hugh Bonneville, Paddington’s father and Lord Grantham himself, tweeted Zelensky, expressing his joy at his courage over the past week and that they share such a connection.
