* Both BookerT and his wife Sharmell attempted British accents (Sharmell semi-successfully, Booker less so) when Booker became "King of the Ring" in 2006, even though they continued to be billed as residents of Houston, Texas.

*** Not Gaulish? (Wouldn't an average Roman say 'Gaulish' rather than 'Celtic'?)

* 2007's ''WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}}'' does something like this: although the Zealanders speak in fake, but at least subtle, Danish accents -- Grendel even speaks [[HistoryOfEnglish Old English]] -- the Geats speak in the actors' natural accents, which means that the title character, since he's played by Ray Winstone, is a Cockney ("I'm 'ere to kiw your monstah."), and Wiglaf speaks in an attempt at a Welsh accent.

* Native Australian ChrisHemsworth plays ''Film/{{Thor}}'' in the Marvel Comics films with a rather stylized "classical" English accent (as opposed to, say, a Scandinavian one). Though, granted, this ''is'' true to the source material (see the Comic Books section above). In ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' this is PlayedForLaughs when Tony Stark refers to one of Thor's speeches as "Shakespeare in the Park" and proceeds to imitate him.

** All of the Asgardian characters at least attempt an RP accent. American Jamie Alexander said they used TomHiddleston (who went to Cambridge and is the only one who didn't need to fake it) as their goal reference.

* In the American-produced movie ''Film/{{Spartacus}}'', all the decadent Romans were play by Britons, while the slaves--a mixed bunch historically, but some of them would have been Roman/Italian by birth--were all played by Americans. Per some film critics, this represented a common trope in Hollywood film-making of the period, in which British accents represented decadent modern Europe, while American accents represented normalcy. Spartacus's love interest was played by English actress Jean Simmons, so to maintain continuity, it is mentioned in the film that the character was born in Britain.

* Tony Curtis has a persistent quote following him for decades - a 1950's gossip columnist mocked him, claiming that in one of his SwordAndSandal films he pronounced "Yonder lies the castle of my father" with a distinct Bronx accent, as "Yondah lies the castle of my foddah". The line itself is [[BeamMeUpScotty fairly mangled]], but Tony was still "baffled" as to why a Jewish New York accent is considered more inappropriate for a fantasy character than [[Creator/LaurenceOlivier Sir Laurence Oliver's]] dulcet British tones.
