SMURFY INTERVIEW WITH ALAN CUMMING
Alan Cumming is Gutsy Smurf Alan Cumming speaks of being the voice of Gutsy Smurf in the Smurf Movies...

"I felt very proud to be the Scottish Smurf. It was a good and humorous responsibility - that I would be representing all my nation's Smurf qualities."
Alan even brought some Scottish slang to the part... "One word I started to use was "numpty" – it means idiot, like you stupid numpty, you big numpty. I am singlehandedly reintroducing numpty – not just to the English language, but to the world."

Though the voice actors recorded their roles separately, voicing a Smurf became a sort of badge of honor for the actors. As Alan said of his fellow smurfer... "I met Katy Perry at a party, and it was funny to be able to meet someone and say, "Oh, you‘re Smurfette", and she goes, "Oh, you‘re Gutsy."

Alan Cumming has been known to "work blue" - that is, get a little risque - in his films for adults, but this was his first time being blue on screen, in a role suitable for the whole family. Here is what he had to say... "It's fun to do a part that light, just a laugh. My niece and nephews are older now but they used to love it, like when I was in Spy Kids."

Alan Cumming says that voice acting represents a unique opportunity for the actor.

"It's so important, because your voice is the only human element in the character. When you start, there's no film, no animation, and only your voice to guide the character. I quite enjoyed that. As you're creating the character, you get to try out different ideas. Gutsy came fairly quickly – he's Scottish, but a gruffer kind of Scottish than my usual speaking voice. As you go on, you get into a groove and you find the character."
