Robin Hood! Itís our most famous English myth, and itís been totally stolen by Hollywood, so much so that Robin Hood has an American accent, always.
"Hi, Ah'm Rawbin Hood. Where's the Maid Marian? And the Sheriff of Nottingham? Ahím a Nottingham man, born and bred. Ah live in Sherwood Forest. Ahím from around here."
We wouldn't believe an English-accented Robin Hood.
"Hello. I'm Robin Hood."
"Nooo... You don't have the Nottingham twang!"
— Eddie Izzard, Glorious
Because, unlike some other Robin Hoods, I can speak with an English accent.
