14th-Jul-2011 12:08 pm
LOUK Steel Phillips good morning

Archiving here and on the Dreamwidth.

Title: Fascination
Fandom: Law & Order: UK
Characters: Alesha Phillips, James Steel
Rating: PG
Words: 414
Spoilers: 3x4 "Confession"
Disclaimer: Law & Order belongs to Dick Wolf. I make no money.
Notes: Possibly part of the Great Architect universe, though works just fine as a standalone. Takes place during "Confession." Alesha considers men's voices ... well, one particular man's, anyway.

Very nice! You have NO idea how much I miss me some James Steel

:-)

Thanks!

Sweet.

Ben has THE sexiest voice bar none - and I listen to a LOT of radio plays so I've lots of actors to whom I can compare his voice.

Thanks.

Yes. Yes, he does. I'd be willing to listen to him read the stock ticker.

Or the phone book, or any other deeply dull thing because he'd still make it sound sexy!
14th-Jul-2011 08:33 pm (UTC)
Yes. Exactly. :-)

Lovely! I could hear both James and Alesha as I read...excellent job. :D

So, what kind of voice (besides sexy) would you say James has? Musically, I mean. I'm terrible at identifying voice types.

PS - I really like your new layout!

Thanks! :D

Extrapolating from his speaking voice, he's probably a bass-baritone.

re: layout, thanks! I'd had the same layout for ... uh ... since I joined LJ in 2008, so it was time for a change. It's taking me a little time to get used to it; I had to be reminded to make this an open entry because I'm not used to where the f-locked icon is in this layout and I didn't see it.

Yes, lord that man has a sexy as hell voice. I thought Alan Rickman's voice was the sexiest (and not to mention the late soul singer Barry White) and then along came Ben to give them a run for their money. He can talk to me any day!

Ok, lemme stop swooning.

According to his resume on imdb, he classifies his voice as bass. I studied voice and I would say low baritone/high bass is his classification

Doesn't surprise me that he lists himself as a bass; bass-baritones (I'm still going with that for him) tend to sing bass just as mezzo-sopranos (which I am) tend to sing alto. (Plus, if you're not an opera singer, the difference between bass and bass-baritone is fairly academic.)

I have never had the physical reaction to a man's voice that I have to Ben's. Just ... guh. Keep him talking. ;-)
