You Have An Accent



You have an accent.

No joke.

No matter what anyone has said to you in the past, I am here to set the record straight.

You have an accent.

I have an accent.

Every DCW Registered Dialect Coach has an accent.

Everybody who speaks (and even everyone who signs) has an accent. 

Every person, everywhere on the planet has an accent, we just don’t take much notice of the ones that are very similar to our own, so sometimes we think some people don’t have them. (But we all do!)


If every person has an accent, it follows that every character in every commercial, every film, every TV show, every web series and every play also has an accent.


How much have you been relying on your own personal everyday accent to fit every role?

Which accents might help you book more roles?
