I'm not sure Kidman was actually trying to do a clean American accent in Big Little Lies. I don't think it's ever specified that she's a U.S. born & bred person. She just sounds like an Aussie who's lived in America most of her life. She's usually very careful and prepared when she takes on an accented role so I think it's unfair to pick on her accent here, when it may not have even been intended.

In the Xhosa accent, the speakers strongly pronounce the "R" sound. All accents in South Africa do that, including some variants of South African English (to a lesser degree), unless the speaker has learned to pronounce his/her words closer to standard English. So, that actress should have pronounced the word "improve" as "impRRRove" .(kind of like the Scottish would).

Australian accents are so difficult! The way they say "o" sounds almost sounds like an "oy". Instead of "no" pronounce it "noy" with an upward inflection.

That makes me so gratefull for opera - because in real singing you lose your accent - unless you deliberately try to keep the accent. But that runs into other problems, which probably have something to do with the overtones that are a whole number (?) of octaves above the basic tone. In German there is the Umlaut (f.i. ä) which I suppose is a question of half octaves(?). Beethoven was aware of the problem; but did not reach a conclusion. We need to get to Wagner throwing the third tone of the triad in the orchester - which is one of the reasons why Wagner is not suited for piano recitals.

Also my mum is Vietnamese and she doesn’t speak like that but this is after almost 20 years of practicing her English more. She tries her best but I can see similarities between Hong Chau’s Vietnamese accent and my mum’s/Vietnamese relatives learning English accent.

Real Russians would never say 'neveRRRR', they (we) would just say 'neve'. Also, an accent is only that bad when you hardly speak English. With Lawrence's perfect grammar and vocab (common mistake with movie 'foreigners'), she could not have possibly retained an accent like that. Also, Killing Eve's so-called 'Russian' is horrible beyond words. I just wish they hired someone who actually spoke the language and given the amount of Russians everywhere in the world, that should really not be a problem. In fact, it would be my dream job, now that I think about it!

As an American (near Charleston, SC), I would actually de-rhoticize that "KimBERley" vowel too, since it's an unstressed syllable in the middle of the word. I'd say it's natural.

06:52 "Some people thought this was an offensive stereotype". Why didn't people find all the other examples offensive stereotypes? I will bet those who thought it offensive were not Vietnamese. but white American "progressives". Give it a break.
