As recounted in Room to Dream, David Lynch caught wind of Jake Wardle, who played the Cockney security guard, Freddie Sykes, thanks to a viral YouTube video the British voice over artist recorded on request of his friends. Titled “The English Language in 24 Accents,” the 8-minute video (embedded below for your convenience) features a 20-year-old, blonde Jake and has gathered over 30 million views since it was uploaded in 2010. Its sequel, The English Language in 67 Accents & Random Voices, hasn’t done bad either with nearly 10 million views.

Nine years after this career-defining upload, Jake is launching a new video series on YouTube in which he dubs his green-gloved Twin Peaks character in different accents. First up, Freddie Sykes as a Redneck from Alabama, sitting outside with James Hurley at the Great Northern Hotel loading dock. Additional videos will be added as they go up.
