Alice Leighton - Bella Ramsey (the titular protagonist in Hilda) - What can I say? Like Alice, Hilda is a smart, curious and adventurous girl who is prone to venturing outside of everyday life and shows a lot of pluck even in the middle of bizarre and fantastical situations - it's an ideal fit!
The Cheshire Cat - Stephen Fry (same character in Tim Burton's version) - Say what you will about what Burton did with Alice in Wonderland, but I think we can all agree that Stephen's smooth, laidback, gently witty voice was perfect for the Cheshire Cat! I'm also very fond of his version's design, and strongly based my own on it.
The Queen of Hearts - Shirley Henderson (Moaning Myrtle in the Harry Potter films) - Again, a voice that fits how I picture the character perfectly - petulant, unpredictable and childlike, and capable of going from calm (if prissy) to shrill and ranting in a heartbeat. Also, crucially, Henderson manages to show a sweet and likeable side under Myrtle's mood swings, which would also fit my version of the Queen - she's not really a villain, and Alice manages to come to a strange friendship with her.
The Jabberwock - Matt Berry (the "Butt Witch" in Twelve Forever) - I imagine my version of the Jabberwock as being very like the dragon-like form the "Butt Witch" takes in the finale of this show, going on a rampage like you'd expect, but all the while giving the same ironically affable banter that the most entertaining of villains can provide. Even the most menacing of Wonderland's inhabitants supply their share of quirky humour.

Well, of course there'd be roars and screeches as well, but because it's Wonderland, with expectations often weirdly subverted, I also imagine the Jabberwock speaking in a surprisingly affable voice Watch these scenes with the Butt Witch, and you'll get the idea
Did you ever consider using these voice actors? Also do you recognize any of the people listed here? Michael Brandon, Martin P. Sherman, Ben Small, John Hasler, Joseph May, Christopher Ragland, Kerry Shale, Keith Wickham, Rob Rackstaw, Matt Wilkinson. Jules De Jongh, Teressa Gallagher, William Hope, David Bedella, Joe Mills, Jonathan Broadbent, Bob Golding, Rupert Degas, David Menkin, Chris Mantle, Glen Wrange, Tim Whitnall, Michael Legge, Jonathan Forbes, Maggie Ollereshaw, Mike Grady, Miranda Raison, Olivia Coleman, Rebecca O' Mara, Togo Igawa and Tom Stourton?

Thomas the Tank Engine voice actors, hmm? Well, there's a LOT to choose from there - I'm sure I can find good character matches for at least a few of them
BTW, I DID use Teresa Gallagher as the voice of Beatrice Burr (the mother bruin) in my Goldie project
I can imagine that Alice is hugging a crying Queen of Hearts, which makes sense because the heart represents love, and she wants anyone to love her because she thought that she felt unlove.
