Q & A with Hugh Jackman on the filming of Kate & Leopold.
Q: To perfect the accent, did you stay in character off-camera?
HJ: To be honest, the accent was one of the things I was most nervous about because - and I don’t want to offend anyone here - in Australia, upper-class English men are never portrayed as the likeable leading man. They’re usually something else - I won’t go into it - but, growing up, that was my experience. The accent wasn’t that hard for me to do, because my father’s English, from Cambridge, and my mother’s English. I’d been in England a lot. So, I got the sound right, but my dialogue coach said I also sounded as if I had a carrot up my you-know-what, as if I was JUDGING the character, which I WAS. So I stayed with the accent - not the character, the accent - for about two weeks at home. It drove my kid crazy, because I was reading him stories in that voice. It certainly drove my wife crazy.
