Surprise for him, he didn’t even know he’d gotten the gig until he heard himself on TV.
Yeah, it didn’t make sense to me either, so read this article from TheVerge.com, and “hear” the whole story. Lucky guy…but it underscores how you can’t let ANY possible opportunities slip away for lack of initiative.

(Also see comment from Natalie Cooper below, including link to the original article: The original interview was in The Telegraph here http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/apple/8879705/The-voice-behind-Siri-breaks-his-silence.html
He’s well known in the UK, and also owns voiceover agency http://www.excellenttalent.com/)
