Anne Hathaway ‘deliberately’ changed accent in film for alter ego’s sake
Washington: Anne Hathaway has revealed that she deliberately changed her accent while playing her British character Emma Morley in ‘One Day’ in order to reflect her alter ego``s changing experiences.
The 28-year-old actress explained that she purposefully gave her dialect a mould to establish the fact that her alter ego had moved from Yorkshire, in the north of England, to London in the south.
“The movie is different than the book, but I tried to get as much of Emma from the book into the movie-just little things here and there. One of the things was the accent,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“I wanted to make sure that the accent changed over the course of the movie, and that it wasn``t just a standard Yorkshire - I don``t know if that even exists-or a standard London accent. I wanted to make sure that the accent grew with her.
“How it was affected by her education, by where she was working, who she was hanging out with. So having the book as my guide to answer a lot of those questions was enormously helpful,” she added.
