Ah ok my bad.
She was told to do the accent by the director.
If she couldn't do one, fine. That's on no one but herself as she just didn't/doesn't have the ability to do so. And there's nothing wrong with that. But it is the director's fault for making her continue to do it when it clearly wasn't working to begin with.
This being why the accent as never used past the first film. Singer finally did see it wasn't working, but it was too late.
