    If they do another episode like this it would be awesome to hear the analysis of Laura Fraser (Scottish) in Breaking Bad as her character Lydia Rodarte-Quayle. I had no idea she was Scottish!

    2:40 however, what is extremely unrealistic is that the actor has clearly black blood while Chileans are along the Argentinians the Latinos with less almost none black people in their community. Chileans are white mixed with Indigenous people. So the actor doesn´t look Chilean at all.

    That’s hilarious. I actually thought Nicole’s character was meant to be Australian (I’m Australian and it sounded very Aussie to me), and that she just had a slight American accent because the character had been living in the US for a few years. I didn’t realise she was actually trying to act like she was American born.

    Andrew Lincoln May have done a decent American accent but after several years in Kentucky it’s not universal. There’s a northern “default” American accent that you hear in about 70% of Kentuckians, there’s the proper accent that sounds like southern belles and you start to hear those “pin-pen-pan” similarities, and finally there’s the Appalachian accent that you get way out where in eastern Kentucky and northerners can barely understand them

    I hate how people who aren’t even Asians see an Asian character with a distinctive accent/dialect and say it is stereotypical and offensive. Like the movie Silence, someone said it was offensive how the characters spoke when at the time, it was rare to speak English, even today most people can’t speak English and Japanese people who can, talk like the characters in Silence. Recently there are an increasing number of young Japanese people who can speak English with an American accent(still not a lot though)

    So where in the world is English spoken closest to it's laws pronunciation? In the America's upper midwest. Discounting Chicago-ese, the only regional accent that can be noticeable is on the leading E sometimes, instead of "eggs" it almost closer to the long A and sounds more like "aygs"

    You really can't summarise "Southern Irish" as an accent. We're a small place, but even the difference between Cork and Kerry is huge despite being neighbouring counties. The pronounciation of words and syllables in different contexts and the inflection of the same words in both accents is completely difrerent. Galway, Sligo, Mayo, Wicklow, Dublin etc. all have very distinct accents. People still seem to have a very hard time figuring out our accents

    Anyway I think that it should be taken into consideration the fact that many movies, such as Red Sparrow, are made in English with the corresponding accent but the characters are actually supposed to be speaking their native language. This really bugs me sometimes, but I understand that the scope is to give us some sort of idea that the characters are not actually speaking English, so I cut them sone slack if it's not perfect.

    You can hear Cruz speaking with a Spanish accent all the way through that Donatella performance. She pronounces ALL of her consonants like a Spaniard. "He was a creator" has no Italian in it at all. Ditto "collector", "genius", "future", etc.

    I'd like to mention Mat Damon in the Bourne Identity.. as a native Dutch speaker I can tell you his pronunciation of Dutch and several other languages (German, French etc.) is really well done. It is very hard to learn if you don't learn it as a child, so hat off to that.
    Other then that.. Benedict Cumberbatch really amazes me.. just real class..

    Especially fantasy ones.
    Fantasy video games are known for having accent tropes to go with their trope races and ive always wondered what their inspirations were, since they always sounded like hodge-podges to me.

    My husband loves the Highlander movie, and when he watched the bonus features on the dvd Christopher Lambert’s accent was addressed. They worked on it extensively but in the end he just couldn’t quite nail it down because of his Swiss accent so they kind of just threw in the towel and went with what they had. He did try though.
