No, I'm not hearing them in my head. I have a hero with a very slight Egyptian accent mixed with 'posh' English gentleman--kind of Omar Sharif, if any of you are old enough to remember him. (I'm having quite a problem depicting its effect on the heroine without tedious phonetic dialogue.) I suppose it's inevitable that I find Omar Sharif's voice Number One since it's slightly like my Turkish husband's. I also like Turkish men's voices because they all seem to have a lovely light baritone, so maybe it's not so much the accent, it's the tone of the voice that's important. It got me curious to know what accents people here found irresistible. Is there a star you'd nominate your all-time sexy voice champion? Or do pronounced accents actually turn you off? We'd better keep this thread respectable, btw.
