If her character has a german accent she has to be a relatively recent german immigrant or a german living in the states for some reason ... mmhh, I hope it's no nazi stuff, they already did that in Asylum. Maybe it's cold war related, she could be an east german communist.
I also hope she does a realistic german accent and not one those over the top ones, that's too easy, everyone can fake cliched over the top accents with very little effort.
You posted old news, didn't bother writing a single word and obviously didn't even read the last two posts above yours. Great post, would read again.
