Mame and I are on the phone, watching Conan O'Brien and giggling together. You know. As you do. And Stephen Moyer from our very favoritest show ever True Blood is on. (Bill! He plays Bill!)

He's BRITISH in real life, people. Which we knew. But we'd never heard him speak. It's...disconcerting, to say the least. Also, hot. And he's ridiculously charming. And then he started morphing back and forth into different kinds of British accents and then to his southern Bill voice. Weird!

EGT! It was like that time that we discovered that Chuck Bass was really British In Real Life and I dug up that Youtube clip of him just being English at everyone. And we were like o_O.

Who else is Secretly British In Real Life? Because it just makes them more attractive.

Why do people insist on making British people American? Like Chuck Bass wouldn't still be awesome if he were British.

Dan Mac said...

This is an obvious one, but I'll toss it out there anyway: Battlestar Galactica's Apollo, Jamie Bamber.

Also Damian Lewis of Life and Band of Brothers whose American accent is ridiculously good.

Pip pip, Tally Ho and all that sort of rot you know. I say old chap, fancy a spot of tea?

EGT: Hmm. I think it would be strange if Chuck Bass were British. I think it would change his character. So, I'm ok with them making hide his British-ness!

Dan: I always thought Jamie did a good job with the accent. Idris Elba from "The Wire" did a FANTASTIC job. I heard him on NPR in his real voice and was AMAZED. Also, I swooned a little bit. Dominc West...not so much.

In the reverse, I was stunned to discover that Spike from "Buffy" wasn't really British. This was before the internets (Bless.) and I saw him on "Politically Incorrect" and was quite alarmed.

V: I always fancy a spot of tea! When are you coming to visit?

Sorsha Ni said...

Totally fancy a spot of tea anytime. Count me in!

Still terrified
