Hi, I watched a bit of your video, and I remember what you wrote about a few weeks ago about having a "heavy accent" -- I don't think you have a heavy accent at all, after listening to you speak. Yes, it's not a perfect american accent, but IMHO, it's not a heavy non-american accent. Take care!

Hi Wayne!

In reply to the comment you left on my blog, you wrote: "Either way, it's an Actor's job to be a master of dialogues and accents. :)"

That reminds me of a scene from "Double Happiness" with Sandra Oh. She's at an audition, the CD asks her if she can do an accent, and she quite cheerfully asks in a French accent, "What sort of accent would you like?" They just stare her down without smiling, so she switches to a thick Chinese accent, "Yes I can do a very good accent for you." I felt so bad for her.

So, I can totally empathize with you. Keep up the hard work! Eventually, a standard American accent will come easily to you. =)
