A whistlestop tour of the accents of the British Isles


A dialect coach, Andrew Jack, gives a fascinating tour of the accents of the British Isles. Andrew is a leading dialect coach in Britain and the USA. He helped turn Robert Downey Jr into Charlie Chaplin in Richard Attenborough’s Chaplin; in GoldenEye he taught Irishman Pierce Brosnan to perfect his British accent for James Bond, and taught the rest of the cast to speak with Russian accents; for The Lord of the Rings Andrew created the Middle-earth accents and taught them, along with Elvish and Black Speech, to the entire cast of the trilogy. He designed and taught the accents for the Greeks and Trojans in Troy.
