His most high-profile voice acting gig to date is Paddington in the Ukrainian versions of Paddington and Paddington 2. Watch him at work in the video below:
Zelensky is currently leading Ukraine against a Russian invasion and has received praise for his leadership of the country during the war. He has said that he is Russia’s no. 1 target, but has chosen to remain in the country.
