I ran across this today and had to share.
Dominic Purcell is the actor that play Lincoln Burrows on Prinson Break.
May 19, 2006
Prison Break star Dominic Purcell says his wife hates him talking in an American accent.
The actor - who was born in London but grew up in Australia - has revealed it would even cause them to having blazing rows at home.
He confessed: "She is Australian too and me speaking with an American accent at first was hard for her. She looked at me like, "You f**king idiot."
"She didn't mind it because she understood why I had to do it. But when we got into fights and arguments it just gave her so much ammunition.
"Speak to me in Australian!"
"But now she's OK with it. It's no problem."
And It gets better:
When people recognize you in the street, what do they say to you?
In general, people are sweet and cool about it. This guy said, “Thanks for entertaining me.” I thought that was cool. Some people go nuts and ballistic and they freak out. Airports are a trip. If I am walking in the airport and stop to have coffee, people freeze, look at you and freak out!
When I went to Wal-Mart to do the weekly grocery shopping, and this lady behind the counter just started screaming her head off like someone was robbing her.
And before I knew it, two security guards came from nowhere and pinned me and dragged with me saying, “What’s going on?”
Then She said, “No, no, no. He’s the guy from Prison Break.”
And the guards were like, “Oh yeah, can we take a photo?”
It can get weird.
