Did You Know?

Trivia

The series was not as well-received as other adaptations of Just William due to the perceived "poshness" of actor Oliver Rokison, who played the title role. In the books, William Brown spoke with a rough, faux-Cockney accent much to his parents annoyance but Rokison portrayed the character with a posh, middle class accent, which destroyed most of the under-lying tension between the boy and his parents over his "common" ways.

wheres the lisp???
25 January 2006 | by PinkDemon7815See all my reviews

OK after hearing many comments and being criticized on POINT OF VIEW, I would like to set the record straight as to why there was NO lisp coming from the mouth of Violet E Bott....and I should know because I was her.

Had someone told me I was meant to have a lisp, I would have done but it slipped everyones mind and as I was only young and not familiar with the books, I was not to know. By the time someone remembered she was supposed to lisp, we were already several days into shooting and unable to start again.

As a result I now feel that I didn't do the part justice.

AND THAT IS WHY VIOLET DID'NT LISP

I hope those who watched it were not to disappointed

Regards T. Griffiths
