A non-British actor pretending to be a British character. (Please note that "British" here actually indicates "Southern English", not Northern (English), Scots, Welsh, Ulster, or Republic-of-Ireland.) The most commonly imitated accent is the Received Pronunciation one, or else a cockney voice. There are of course a great variety of English accents, but these are the two most recognisable to American ears. Even English actors who don't have these accents normally may be called upon to imitate them. Irish, Scottish and Welsh actors are typically required to play English characters too - due to the fact that England has a bigger film industry and these actors usually end up moving to London if they want to build up an international career. It is a rare Irish or Scottish actor indeed who doesn't have half a dozen English characters on their résumé.)

Added DiffLines:

* Famously, Music/GreenDay's Billie Joe Armstrong occasionally lapses into a pseudo-Cockney drawl, particularly on earlier tracks like "Basket Case." This could be owed to him imitating the styles of British punk bands like Music/SexPistols (or fellow Brit imitator like the aforementioned Ramones).

** In the US version of ProfessorLaytonAndTheUnwoundFuture, "Future Luke"/[[spoiler:Clive]] is played by YuriLowenthal and Dr.Stahngun is played by Creator/LiamOBrien, two famous American voice actors. Both their fake accents are ''very'' convincing.

* The dub for ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', due to majority of the characters being British unsurprisingly evokes this. Some of the voice actors like Creator/BenDiskin and Creator/PatrickSeitz performed the accents decently while others such as Creator/JohnnyYongBosch... not so decently

** KennethBranagh apparently had an Irish accent when he was young (seeing as his family was from Belfast), but affected an English accent to avoid bullying at school. It seems that it's become his natural accent.
