Olly Murs announces role in new Disney Channel series
Olly Murs has teamed up with Disney to play his first-ever acting role in Disney Channel’s new series 101 Dalmatian Street – a collaboration brought about by 4th Floor Creative’s Brand Partnerships team.
As the voice of Cornish Doberman Spike, Olly appears in a two-part special which tells the story of what happens when the Dalmatians travel down from London to Cornwall on holiday.
Speaking about his role as Spike, Olly said, “I’m voicing a very chilled but adventurous Doberman called Spike. He’s a surfer dude with a sensitive streak who develops a soft spot for Dolly when the characters head to Cornwall for a summer holiday. I really enjoyed taking on the exciting new challenge of voice acting, particularly for such a cool new Disney Channel character.
The series starts on 18th March and Spike will get his starring role later this summer – I can’t wait to see the reaction to my canine creation when it airs.”
RCA Records’ Paloma Faith also stars as the voice of Portia Poodle, with other members of the voice-cast including Ben Smith (Sid Squirrel, Spencer Sausage Dog), Stephen Mangan (Doctor Dave), Josh Brener (Dylan) and Michaela Dietz (Dolly).
101 Dalmatian Street will launch on Disney Channel on 18th March at 5pm with new episodes every Monday to Thursday.
Olly is also set to tour the UK this summer, playing arenas across the UK. Head to www.ollymurs.com for ticket information.
