Euan Lewis MacLeod (born 6 December 1970) is a Scottish character actor, who can be heard as the voice of many television commercials, film trailers and cartoons in the UK.

Vocal work[edit]

He voices characters such as Sebulba from Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace and Postman Pat. He can also be heard as the Earl on Cartoon Network's Skatoony, as well as comedy sketches for BBC Radio, including BBC Radio Scotland's Off the Ball, Bigipedia for BBC Radio 4, Newsjack for BBC Radio 7, Mario Abdullah-Levy in the BBC Comedy Series Look Around You and Mr. Happy (singing voice) and Mr. Stubborn from The Mr. Men Show. He also provided the voices of Principal Brown, Rocky Robinson and Anton in Cartoon Network's The Amazing World of Gumball.

He also voiced Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (video game). He is also a mimic, with a voice range including Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Christopher Walken, Gordon Brown, Boris Johnson and George Galloway.
