Actors who do boss accents

Recommended Posts

Christian Bale has a tremendous array of accents. Born in Wales to an English couple, if you met him it would be impossible to distinguish when he is speaking native accent and when he's speaking in an adopted accent.

Yeah Bale is brilliant at accents.

Maybe someone from the US could put me straight, but I always thought Hugh Laurie's accent in House was pretty good. Michael Sheen always catches the accent of the character he is playing (Brian Clough, David Frost etc.) perfectly.

Steve Arnott in Line of Duty.  You'd never know he was Scottish. 

That's gotta be a winner. I always think the stronger your accent is the harder it must be to suppress it.

I thought Gillian Anderson did a passable posh British accent, until I saw an interview with her and realised she was posh and British. 

Born in America, grew up in England, I think.

She's a right one, British in Britain American in America.  But I don't think it's necessary being fake, both accents are natural to her depending on who she's talking to.

Same with that John Barrowman, proper American or Canadian drawl but when you see him speaking to his Scottish parents he's like Rab C Nesbitt.   

Actually, I used to question both their integrity until I was watching a f**tba*l documentary recently and a daughter was talking to her dad (both initialled KD) and the "scouse" daughter very naturally developed a Scottish lilt.  No way would I question her integrity so the other two now get the benefit of the doubt.

Johnny Lee Miller as Sick Boy in Trainspotting. I just assumed he was Scottish like the others. Speaking of, Kelly McDonald did a convincing southern US accent in No Country For Old Men too.

Rene Zelwegger must be good, like him out of Line of Duty she has a very strong natural accent but you wouldn't know it, real Texan.
