19 Fake Character Accents You Probably Thought Were Real
Jax Teller from Sons of Anarchy
Portrayed by: Charlie Hunnam
The English actor worked pretty hard to learn his American accent, and so it comes as no surprise that he sounded like a natural on the show. However, staying in U.S. and taking on so many American roles actually did a number on his original accent.
He said: “I’ve been acting and living in America for so long and acting with American dialects, and putting an enormous amount of time and energy into trying to learn an American dialect and get it as flawless as I can, that by the time I got hired to return back to England, I had adopted, just naturally, a lot of those cadences and inflections. So I hired a dialect coach to help me get back into the right rhythm of British speech.”
