Attention VO peeps, language nerds and anthropology enthusiasts.  On this side of the pond we don’t always think about the many accents present in the speaking patterns of folks in Britain as well as Scotland and Ireland.  But in this video, Siobhan Thompson gives examples of many of them including some celebrities and where their accent originated.  I found this while researching a specific British accent.  In VO, you often have to nail a regional dialect to have any shred of authenticity.  Videos like this are extremely helpful.  Plus, it’s fun and fascinating!
