Default Re: Can you see this? The Invisible Woman thread.

How is Alice Eve's American accent? I found it odd and distracting in Star Trek that her father had an American accent, and the Carol Marcus that we know from Wrath of Khan had an American accent . . . but she had a British accent.

Did they do it that way because she has trouble with an American accent? It may seem like a small detail, but I think part of the problem with Ioan Gruffudd as Reed was that he wasn't comfortable with an American accent and that prevented him from projecting the kind of confidence we would have liked to see with Reed (Confidence that he had as Lancelot when he wasn't required to do an American accent).
