7. Chris Hemsworth (Australian)
Interestingly enough, the aforementioned Hugh Jackman is not the only Marvel superhero who’s actually Australian. Chris Hemsworth, who portrays Thor, god of thunder, is also an Aussie - even though you wouldn’t suspect it from watching his films.
Hemsworth, who began his successful Hollywood career in his mid-20s, admitted that suddenly returning to act in his native accent for the movie Ghostbusters (2016) was a very weird experience for him.
8. Isla Fisher (Australian)
Isla Fisher was born in Oman, where her father worked as a banker, and moved to Australia with her parents when she was 6. She began her career on Australian TV, on long-running soap opera Home and Away, and made a successful transition to Hollywood with films like The Wedding Crashers and Now You See Me – with a spot-on American accent.
Fisher is married to British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen - another master-of-accents.
9. Millie Bobby Brown (British)
Millie Bobby Brown was only 9 when she landed her first role, and at age 12 was cast as Eleven in the hit sci-fi show Stranger Things.
Brown, who was born in Spain and grew up in England, revealed that when auditioning for the role she decided to hide her British accent and audition with her fake American instead, in order to increase her chances of getting the role – and it worked. Brown has also shared that she perfected her American accent by watching Miley Cyrus in Hannah Montana.
10. Rosamund Pike (British)
Hit film Gone Girl was full of twists – with one of them being the fact that Rosamund Pike, who plays the mysterious Amy Dunn, is in fact British and not American.
Like many other actors, Pike - whose previous work in the UK included classic British titles such as Pride and Prejudice - worked with a dialect coach to achieve the desired result. The hard work paid off and her role was met with critical acclaim and an Academy Award nomination.
