Zachary Levi Explains Why He Faked an English Accent For a Disney Film Audition

Turns out, he didn’t actually need to …

“When I was in ‘Tangled’ for Disney which is such an incredible film, such an incredible experience, but yeah, they thought Flynn Ryder, the role that I ultimately played … they wanted him to have an English accent and they wouldn’t even see American actors,” Levi explained.

The actor said his voice over agent fought for him and he managed to be one of the only Americans who got an audition.

“And then then they gave me the job — based on my English accent,” Levi explained. “And then later, they said, ‘You know what? I think we’re going to do it with an American accent. Can you do that?’ I’m not even kidding. And I was like, ‘Yeah, I think I can do that.’”

Levi voiced Flynn opposite Mandy Moore’s Rapunzel in the 2010 beloved animated classic.
