He has stated that he believes his big break in ''Zulu'' occurred only because the American director didn't have the built-in class prejudice that so many British people had.

Added DiffLines:

* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: Whether he's playing a Briton, American, or even a Nazi, Caine rarely drops his trademark Cockney accent. Some films like ''Film/TheSwarm'' even include explanations why this ostensibly American character sounds like, well, Michael Caine. ''Film/{{Zulu}}'' is an exception, where he does a fair upper-class accent.
