I'm still having trouble dealing with Idris Elba as a futuristic Norse god...

FTA:   So I asked, "Do you really think it's interesting? Or do you think I will never be able to totally erase my French accent and be totally Scottish?" And he said, "No, no, no, we really think it's interesting."

And if you believe that, Cotillard, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

Honestly,I think someone who has a heavy French accent would have an extremely difficult time doing a well enough Scottish accent. Especially one like a Glaswegian accent. They are too far from each other. The use of the mouth is completely different. I can imagine that having to do one would make acting suffer because you are concentrating so much on getting the accent right, you are not in the moment of the scene.

Of course, I imagine the opposite is true as well. Scots doing French accents.

The Auld Alliance Play
 
2014-03-11 09:52:08 AM  
The "Auld Alliance" (mentioned above) between the Scottish and French crowns went back to 1295, so a Scottish noble being married to a French noble is not really out of place.

While the play itself is set in the 11th century, the Scots and the French had an alliance against the
English from the 13th to the 16th centuries.  So its not completely out of the question.

That website has to leave the theater, turn around three times, spit, curse, and then ask permission to come back in.

Already done, by Captain Picard and Kate Fleetwood.  I mark this as the best Macbeth I've ever seen.  YMMV

Dammit! The "Black Adder" ani-gif is too big.

It's like the difference between a French kiss and a Glasgow kiss, right?

Do you think the actors of Shakespeare's tried on modern Glaswegian accents? Or any accent other than their own?

Damn Realism.
Damn Realism.

It has turned people into ijuts.

What does anything I have written have to do with whether or not Scottish accents were used during the play's original run. What I said was that it would be hard for a French actress to do a Scottish accent because the two accents are too different.

Reading comprehension isn't your strong point, ijut.

Sorry. I didn't understand that you were just making an irrelevant point.
