One of Charlie Haylock’s key roles as a voice coach on The Dig was to ‘Suffolkate’ the script – turning the actor’s dialogue into phonetic Suffolk-speak.
Charlie explained: “I did not insert phrases like "Sloightly on the huh" as people watching the film from outside East Anglia wouldn't understand nor any other such phrases or sayings. But I did include these phrases because they could be understood due to the context in which they were delivered…”
