Top Five Movie Teen Tearaways

Rebellious teens, trouble making pranksters – the kind that we try our very hardest to keep our own children away from, yet we love to watch their antics on our screens!

In Taika Waititi’s latest film, we follow a journey of a defiant young city boy, who finds himself on the run in the wild New Zealand bush, with his cantankerous foster uncle.

How do I become … a voiceover artist

Doing a wide range of voices for ad jingles, films and animations requires versatility, imagination and more than a little practice

The impish boy on the end of the phone line is superseded by a lisping little girl, before the boy's mother and then an elderly lady from somewhere up north take over. Just as an alien is clearing its throat, Joanna Ruiz reclaims the conversation.

Ruiz, 42, has supplied voices for a range of children's shows, including the Horrid Henry cartoons, and her more formal tones will be familiar to many who have endured computerised employee programmes on health and safety in the workplace. "I've just done one of those for Fife NHS on heart surgery about which I know nothing," she says. "Often I have no clue what I'm saying, but the trick is to sound as though I do, so I have to learn how to pronounce all these strange medical terms.

Review: Horrid Henry – The Good, the Bad and the Bugly (Nintendo 3Ds)

Written by Francesca Simon, the Horrid Henry series follows the adventures of Henry, a rambunctious trouble-making boy and his goody-two-shoes brother Peter. Originally a series of books, it’s been turned into a TV series, a film and now it’s very own Nintendo 3Ds game with Horrid Henry: The Good, the Bad and the Bugly.

This isn’t my first experience with a Horrid Henry game, the first being the iPad app we reviewed a while ago. This time round we’re treated to a platform adventure in the style of Mario featuring three different worlds to explore as Horrid Henry sets out on his quest to retrieve Bunny, his brother Peter’s toy rabbit, by solving puzzles and defeating bosses with his goo gun and its four types of goo.

A succession of Viking literary sagas, films and television series, pieces of poetry and avant-garde art, not to mention preparations for a major British Museum show, are now all on the slipway.

More than 50 years after actors Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis donned their woollen tunics for Hollywood blockbuster The Vikings, a television series of the same name and a TV version of British writer Neil Gaiman's Nordic gods-inspired bestseller, American Gods, are both in development.
