Herefordshire Boy's Big Part in 'PAW Patrol: The Movie'

U.K. - A Herefordshire youngster has a starring role in a Hollywood-backed children's film.

Matthew Campbell, 14, of Much Dewchurch, is a voice actor who recently voiced Chase the Police Pup in the big screen adaptation of Nickelodeon's beloved CG-animated preschool series, PAW Patrol.

The voice recordings for PAW Patrol: The Movie took place in Gloucestershire at a studio that has specialised in this industry since 1990.

The popularity of the hit Nick Jr. series led to a movie being made by Paramount, ViacomCBS, and Nickelodeon.

The movie was dubbed (voiced added) in June, and Matthew, who had been working with the Gloucestershire Studio on other projects, was brought in to play Chase, the leading pup of the PAW Patrol.

The UK localisation (voice dub from American to English) of the movie included TV personality Sam Faiers (The Only Way Is Essex), presenter and journalist Richard Arnold (Good Morning Britain),  singer/songwriter Ronan Keating (Boyzone, The One Show) and musician Tom Fletcher (McFly).

Matthew has also worked with Welsh directors on short movies alongside Welsh actors such as Lynn Hunter and Nathan Sussex.

Covid and the lockdown has pushed Matthew towards voiceover work because of the lack of filming and opportunities, his father Martyn Campbell told the Hereford Times.

Matthew is currently pursuing his passion as a part of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.
