  2. All accents are hard for people who didn't grow up speaking them because it isn't just about the way the words sound but how they're put together and even which words are used. Kudos to anyone willing to use a foreign accent for the harsh critics of the general populace. 🙂

  3. So no one is going to comment on the fact that so many Brits take leading roles that are meant to be American roles?

  4. I think British people are better at doing American accents than the other way around, because it's easier to take away something than to add it. For a British person to do an American accent he essentially has to take away his own accent; for an American to do a British accent he has to add something to his own accent, which is harder to do.

  5. My ears have just been blessed. With all due respect to all fellow American, I think this is why I prefer British males because they are so polite and classy gentleman-like, and that great sense of humor as well tho
