"I remember watching Thomas the Tank Engine with my children when they were young and I’m delighted that it continues to appeal to each successive generation. I enjoy working vocally and have voiced many animated characters. Sailor John was something of a departure from what I usually do and a lot of fun to play."
— John Hurt referring to his role
