We all speak English but do so in such a different way that when actors are preparing for movies the use a dialect coach to help with the accent.

Andrew Jack has been a dialect coach for movies and theatrical productions for over thirty years working with some of the most successful actors including Robert Downey Jr, Cate Blanchett , Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson and Harrison Ford.

Brilliant!
