A few different actors have lent their voices to the GEICO gecko over the years. His accent is British, but some people mistake it for Australian. These are the three actors:
  • Kelsey Grammer, of Frasier frame
  • David Kelly, an English radio personality
  • Jake Wood, an English actor known for his role in EastEnders
