Melissa Annelli of The Leaky Cauldron had a chat with Jim Dale, the man who voices the U.S. audiobook versions of Harry Potter:
TLC: Has there ever been a part of the recording you wish you could go back and change?
JD: Every sentence. Of course, because when you rehearse a play the first time you read the play and open your mouth and speak those lines, it's not the way you're going to be doing it on the opening night, and the way you're doing it on opening night is not the way you're going to be doing it three months into the production. So an actor is always correcting and polishing and adding to - these are called moments, you create a part from moments, and every part gets bigger and bigger.
