Accents are a key part of any actor’s repartee. Any good actor can deliver a performance that could move a grown man to tears or could make a fully packed cinema laugh raucously at their comedic aplomb BUT if the accent wavers, the laughter will be directly at them and the faces will turn sour. So here are some of the worst offenders in the accent category. We’re not saying any of these actors are bad; but these accents leave a lot to be desired…
