Doing a overseas accent or dialect is without doubt one of the main challenges for an actor. Nail it, and the viewers is misplaced within the good efficiency.

10/10 Andrew Lincoln & The Great Coral Reef
The forged of The Walking Dead is crammed with unhealthy Southern accents from the likes of Lauren Cohen and Richard Blumenthal butchering the drawl, however none extra offensive than Andrew Lincoln. As Rick Grimes, the sheriff from Northern Georgia, Lincoln feels like a comic book caricature of a high quality Southern gentleman.
Lincoln, who’s British, stayed in character, accent and all, even when the cameras stopped rolling, but it surely did not assist make it not horrible. Every time he referred to as his son Carl, “coral” was a reminder his vary is proscribed and each time he yelled “hey” and it got here out “Hah-oy” the viewers began rooting for the zombies a bit bit.
Michael C. Hall convincingly performed a sympathetic serial killer within the collection Dexter, which wasn’t the simplest factor to do. When it got here to enjoying a British man within the collection Safe, nonetheless, he could not pull it off. His accent was technically British, but it surely was generic and robotic, main Brits to cry homicide.
