One of the most troubling things for a movie enthusiast is pronouncing names, like Mia Wasikowska, that belong to filmmakers and movie stars (seriously, who was naming some of these people?). Lord knows that on our podcasts I’ve stumbled over an infinite number of these names. For about two weeks, we had an office debate going on for the right pronunciation of “Ralph Fiennes.”
Nick Blake is taking the pain out of finding the right pronunciations. Watch him — and listen closely — as he waxes eloquently with these tongue-twisting names:
I was seriously hoping someone would tell me how to say “Saoirse Ronan” before I meet her in the park some off day (it’s hard enough just to learn to spell “Saoirse”). Thanks a million, Nick.
