Voice of Temeraire
His voice has that sweet, almost boyish-like quality to it which I imagine Temeraire to use whenever speaking to Laurence, whereas it can also be deep and resonating, as we need in a dragon like Temeraire. Also, Redmayne being very educated, he could bring that quality to Temeraire as well.
