He had a Bristol accent which isn't too far away.

Actually, yeah, I think he was originally from Bristol Chris.
I saw a clip yesterday showing that they were initially planning to use his own voice in the first Star Wars, but used that of James Earl Jones.

My mistake. This says that George Lucas wasn't intending to use Dave's voice. Sounds funny to hear it coming from Darth Vader lol
