South African Accent Isn’t Easy for International Stars on James Corden

Despite filming ‘Good Omens’ in Cape Town, Scottish actor David Tennant revealed last week that he just can’t master the South African accent (which happens to have been voted one of the sexiest accents in the world)!

Watch below as David morphs from speaking with a South African twang into sounding like he comes from Birmingham!

Elizabeth Banks (Hunger Games) meanwhile makes fun of Leonardo di Caprio’s accent (from Blood Diamonds) with: “This is Africa.”

The Late Late Show host James Corden himself manages to almost pull off an SA accent…


David, who stars in Good Omens as the demon Crowley, said the South African accent is his “Becher’s Brook” – a very challenging fence in the Grand National horse race.
