Sounding like characters you know

Shelly Long sounded just like the character named Carla who she worked alongside in Cheers when she was voicing a part she played in her 1987 film Outrageous Fortune as she was discussing her career on Johnny Carson. When she gets into character fully she says “gonna squeegee your brains off the wall” and it’s just like hearing Carla talk on Cheers, I mean not just like the accent was right, you could swear you were hearing the voice of Carla. This can happen when you know a voice well, it’s like you absorb the voice. What’s also interesting to watch in this segment at about 4:50 she voices a fast paced record playing, I have never heard anyone do this so well. It’s also interesting to learn that she worked with Natalie Wood as stated in Wikipedia, “Her first notable role came in the 1979 television movie The Cracker Factory as a psychiatric inmate; the movie starred Natalie Wood.”
