    GIVE ME A B…

  2. I miss Australian actors talking in their natural accents. At least Rose Byrne still has one.

    Kiki: what part of Australia has Rose’s accent? I ask because it sounds so distinct, that I am wondering if Australians have very distinct regional accents like Americans do (I’m sure they do, but I am just asking for clarification). If you could fill a brother in. I would appreciate it.

    Add me to the “huge crush on Rose Byrne” club. She could stand to gain a few pounds, however.

    Classy, classy interview. My adoration for Rose Byrne has been approaching Macadams-levels for a while now, from Sunshine thru 28 Weeks Later to Damages, and hopefully Adam will be the breakout movie she deserves. I often wish that Lucas had cast her rather than Natalie Portman to play Amidala – she gave the only decent human performance in Attack of the Clones in less than two minutes of screentime.

  6. IO, Aussies don’t tend to have regional accents. The difference in her accent is probably more down to it being a blend (she’s worked in Aussie, American and British accents) but she’s from Sydney and a Sydney accent is no different to a Melbourne (where I’m from) accent or a Perth accent or so on.

    Thanks for the response Kiki.

“I wanted to make you love a murderer. There’s no way of redeeming him. He’s a drunk and a killer. He killed at least seven people (that we know of). But there were reasons he was a bad guy. He was surrounded by evil in those days. A lot of people were killed building modern Florida—modern everywhere. Watson had plenty of opportunities to see how rough those guys were playing and he thought he could do it too. At least he rationalized it that way. He had the devil beaten out of him and became a very dangerous guy. And he couldn’t handle his liquor, which is one of the worst aspects of him. And he went crazy. Understanding how that happened is useful, I think. There’s no reason any one of us couldn’t be Edgar Watson.”
