In BrE, the vowel in the final syllable of "station", "creation", etc. would be pronounced as a schwa (i.e. quite like the vowel in French "le", "ce", "te", or like the vowel in English "the").
A passing AmE member will correct me if I'm wrong; but I think this would probably be true of most AmE accents too. (I'm finding it difficult to imagine the "u" in "gun" or the "e" in "bed" as the final syllable.)
So your actor must have had a very unusual accent. Who was the actor? Maybe that will help us track down the accent!
