‘grunt and scream’ as ‘Wolverine’ damaged Hugh Jackman’s voice

Hugh Jackman, star of x-men franchise, revealed that his signature growl caused damage to his vocal range. Jackman, who played Wolverine in the films, said the growl caused his vocal cords to swell and strain.

Jackman revealed to BBC Front Rowthat the damage was the result of playing Wolverine.

“My falsetto isn’t as loud as it used to be and I attribute that directly to some of the grunts and squeals,” Jackman said.

“My singing teacher at drama school would have been horrified by some of the things I did [in Wolverine].”

“We learned a technique [in school] how to shout and how to howl without damaging your voice. However, during Wolverine, I did some screaming and screaming and things that I think damaged my voice. I’m working on it. I work with a singing teacher and I try not to hurt myself. I put a lot of effort into both the physical movement and my vocal preparation for each role.

For more than two decades, Hugh Jackman portrayed Wolverine in the x-men film franchise, appearing in six films and two unaccredited cameos.
