James Earl Jones, 91
It’s almost impossible to believe that James Earl Jones, with such a distinct and powerful voice, was born with a stutter. The national treasure of an actor overcame it through poetry and acting which then led him to being cast as Darth Vader in the Star Wars film franchise – one of the most iconic pop culture characters in the world.
Many people would be surprised to know that an EGOT-winning actor, who has done theatre productions, films, and TV shows, is mostly known for his voice. His voice was also featured on The Simpsons and The Lion King (1994, 2019).
