Pegg And Eve: Scottish Accents

In a short video, Simon Pegg and Alice Eve explain how they perfected their Scottish accents. “The thing is with accents,” said Pegg, “is that there’s often a little phrase you need to sort of enter in; that’s like the key to it.”

Re: Pegg And Eve: Scottish Accents

It was too short to work out what they were saying.

Pegg's work in the first film was better. In the second one he was all over the place probably because he had to to a lot of shouting, which he only had to do at the end of the first one. It's incredibly difficult to shout convincingly in an accent that isn't your own. On the bright side, he had some real Brigadoon moments, like the late great James Doohan did every time he opened his gob.

If you want Scottish accents, watch Trainspotting or Brave. Or even if you watch DW, the tenth Doctor in Tooth and Claw.

You mean his native accent.

Re: Pegg And Eve: Scottish Accents

That's kind of my point. In Brave you could argue that Emma Thompson isn't Scottish but her mum is so she nails the accent pretty well, as her performance in Tutti Frutti many moons ago showed us all.

Re: Pegg And Eve: Scottish Accents

Why does Carol Marcus have a Scottish accent when her father doesn't?

Her mother could have had a British accent, and she picked up her mothers accent and not her fathers.

If you are questioning is there such a thing as a British accent, then strictly speaking no. Like many countries the UK has various accents, would you prefer an accent originating from the British Isles?
