Where are all the Canadians?
Posted: 1 year, 5 months ago at Feb 29 2:46
@shalehill Nothing against Canadians! There are an overwhelming amount of Canadians on American TV shows...Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, Sandra Oh, Cobie Smulders, Evangeline Lilly, to name a few. I made this list as a response to how good or bad some actors are at disguising their natural accent and using an American one. The Canadian accent is less noticeably different so I chose not to include them, but maybe I'll get around to making a separate list.
