Famous people from the United Kingdom

Have you ever seen an interview for one of your favorite actors and it turns out that they’re actually British? I haven’t, because I always do my research before an actor truly earns my trust and respect. It’s a real process, you know. Some people may not know this, but Tom Holland, the actor portraying Peter Parker/Spiderman in the new movie “Spiderman: Homecoming” is really from the United Kingdom. Monty Python was also from the United Kingdom. Born in 1943, he lived for 71 years until his eventual death in 2014. Just kidding, he wasn’t actually a person. Monty Python was a sketch series developed and written by multiple people from the United Kingdom, including John Cleese who is probably one of the greatest comedy writers of all time.

I have a buddy down at the best reno chiropractic clinic who loves John Cleese. A lot of people confuse Irish actors for English actors, and sometimes the difference baffles me too. Michael Fassbender, for example, was born in Germany and speaks fluent German yet he’s Irish and has a perfect English accent. Maybe he’s just an extremely good actor. Michael Fassbender has starred in a lot of movies, with his first one being 300. Since then, he has starred in Frank, X-men: Days of Future Past, Prometheus, and the recent summer blockbuster Alien: Covenant. Cillian Murphy is another example, currently starring in the TV series Peaky Blinders. He also happens to be Irish, but doesn’t sound like it at all.

However, he does have an extremely convincing American accent in Batman Begins when he portrays Scarecrow, so I don’t blame him for being good. Next up is Gary Oldman, who happened to be in all three of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy. Gary Oldman is actually such ¬†good actor that he has lost his original accent on multiple occasions and had to undergo speech coaching so that he could regain his original accent. Michael Caine might be one of the most recognizable actors, mostly since he’s been around for so long and he’s been in so many movies. Thank all of you for your time
