It sounded like her accent was British, but in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Carol Marcus had an American accent.
It's fascinating how much a Romulan time traveler destroying a single Federation ship changes everything.
Or casting a different actor.
Actor != character.

Bibi Besch was Austrian, yet Carol Marcus had an American accent. Hugh Laurie is British, yet House is an American.

Couldn't have been too hard, could it?

But then again Abrams & Co didn't bother with making... that other guy, where it would actually have been essential... non-British.

Besch always sounded "off" to me. Laurie's American accent is rubbish. He's the Dick Van Dyke of American accents.

Re: Kirk Meets Carol Marcus

That was a great clip.

Pine and Quinto portray Kirk and Spock, with banter and chemistry so well. That part where Kirk quips "Yet the more the merrier." Perfect shatner-esque delivery and smirk.

Pine does it well yet still has his own take on the character.

Classic trek right there in that little scene.

No good reason to do it.

None at all.

This is a different version of Star Trek, like it or don't.

In this universe Carol went to live with her mother in London.
They probably wanted Starfleet to me more international and less American.
Yes Chekhov has an odd Russian accent and Scotty has a Scottish accent but Zulu and Uhura along with Kirk, Spock and McCoy have American accents.

No. I found it irritating. He does that nasal and flat thing that a lot of Brits do when trying to sound "American" and then tosses in a little "gruff". Apparently there are Americans who sound like that, but I've yet to meet one.
