* During the early years of TheBritishInvasion, British rock stars could be very clumsy in imitating American accents, and TheBeatles were no exception. John Lennon, for one, seemed to believe that Americans ''always'' pronounce the letter ''a'' very short and forward in the mouth, even when this is incorrect: "I'm in the mood to take a ma'am-bo."

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueDoom'' sees British Paul Blackthorne and Olivia D'Abo as Metallo and Star Sapphire respectively. D'Abo had earlier voiced Star Sapphire ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLegue'', only using her natural accent.

* {{Edge}} is also Canadian (and Sean Morley's ex-brother-in-law, for that matter), but always tried to do an American accent when playing a heel. As a face, he generally spoke in his native accent.

* The American soldiers in ''HogsOfWar'' were voiced (as were all the other character voices) by Rik Mayall and Marc Silk. (However, [[PlayedForLaughs all the characters in the game are essentially a collection of stereotypes, anyway]].)

* Jessica Lee Rose of ''{{Lonelygirl 15}}'' adopted an American accent for the character Bree. Occasional lapses into her New Zealand accent prompted early speculation on whether or not the blog was a hoax.

* Cary Elwes usually does a Midwestern-ish accent when playing American characters, though he did a vaguely Southern sounding one in Film/{{Twister}}. HelenaBonhamCarter, Nicholas Hoult, and TimRoth have all done ambiguously American accents.

* Creator/DamianLewis is fond of telling stories about how many fans will approach him to compliment him on ''Series/BandOfBrothers'' - and as soon as they hear him speak they go "you're a ''Brit''!?" He claims that he hasn't been able to fully shake the accent since, and that he'll lapse back into it if he's around Americans.
