Worst accent ever... Mr. Keanu Reeves.
He was going for an Afrikaans accent, and yes it was brutal.It sounded shitty because he wasn't trying to pull off a British accent.
Yeah but he plays such a great character in 'Game of Thrones', i'll forgive him it!Peter Dinklage
no idea but I know the worst i've heard from recent memory is that dickwobble from sons of anarchy that played a 'hoodlum after a spot 'f bovver from souf 'ondon in green st "hooligans"The singing/accent thread got me thinking. It seems like a ton of American actors tackle British accents at some point in their careers. Which (If any) do a convincing job?
Dick Van Dyke had a dreadful English accent.. So bad in fact, that audiences over here burst out laughing when they heard it..The singing/accent thread got me thinking. It seems like a ton of American actors tackle British accents at some point in their careers. Which (If any) do a convincing job?
I figure all Brits sound like Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins:
Step In Time - Mary Poppins (Dick Van Dyke) - YouTube
But what do I know? I've been wrong before.
When women do a British accent they always end up posh, doesn't matter where the character is from, the always sound like Julie Andrews taught them the Queens.The worst fake British accent has belongs to Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider.
What do you think of Idris Elba effort in the Wire? I thought Matthew Rhys in Brothers & Sisters was convincing but you would be a better judge living with the nuances of the accent.There are so many British/Irish/Scottish accents... What REALLY blows my mind are the British/Irish/Scottish actors that can absolutely NAIL an American accent... and we have a few as well...
