Fooled By the Accent?

I know many people, when Hugh Laurie made his acceptance speech for the Golden Globes, were "He's English?!" WTF?

Been watching this new show Trauma, since its based here in my hometown of SF, and notice that Cliff Curtis was in this movie. He was also in Live Free Die Hard (FBI agent) and in Training Day as Smiley (a Mexican gangster).

I watched an interview on him and surprise! He's from New Zealand! He has a heavy accent as well.



Others who got me...

Sendhil Ramamurthy from Heroes (Mohinder Suresh) - I really thought he had an English accent. Turns out, he's from Chicago.

Idris Elba - People know him as Stringer Bell from The Wire or Tango from American Gangster. Maybe as Quentin Winfield in The Christmas. I was surprised to hear he's English.

Kate Beckinsale - The first movie I saw with her in it was Pearl Harbor.

The one that really shocked me was Jamie Bamber. I know, it's not a movie, but he played Lee "Apollo" Adama in Battlestar Galactica. He is British. I had NO clue until I watched the special features on the DVD. Very odd.

**Edited to add: Hugh Laurie...Blackadder. 'Nuff said.

BSG: The Plan comes out this month. It's a prequel to the series, from the point of view of the cylons. No L'il Adama, but PUHLENTY of SAM, which is fine and dandy with me. (Did I mention I got my picture taken with Michael Trucco? *drool*)

Joely Richardson always throws me for a loop. I know her mostly from Nip/Tuck (she's Julia), but she is actually British, so when she's not acting, I am totally thrown off!

Ooh, I'll watch that, I wondered when it was coming out (I don't have TV so I never see previews). Oooh I won't mind watching Sam

Me neither but my friend told me she was the sister of Natasha Richardson (the one who recently passed) and I knew she was English. After that, I could tell she was overpronouncing certain words.

Mark Addy, from Still Standing, got me too. Didn't know he was English as well.

Hugh's limp is also fake which I read somewhere is causing him hip/leg problems.

And Joely Richardson I didn't know either. One of the first shows I saw her in was The Patriot!
